Remove a Plugin from Brackets HTML Code Editor
Edited by Grimm, Amanda, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to remove a plugin from the Brackets HTML code editor.
We will scroll down to our taskbar to get started. We have Brackets pinned to the taskbar. It has a white icon with a blue border around the box. Click the icon to launch Brackets. Now let's open the Extension Manager.
It is near the top left-hand corner of the program. This opens a dropdown menu.
Click "Extension Manager...".
It's near the bottom of the dropdown menu.
Alternatively, click the icon on the far right side that looks like a Lego block.
This is our preferred way of accessing it.
Wait for the Extension Manager to load.
We do need an Internet connection to access the available extensions.
Click the "Installed" tab.
It's the third tab, next to "Available" and "Themes", and to the left of the search bar.
Look at what is already installed.
At the moment, we have a word counter installed. Let's remove that.
This button is on the far right side, next to the plugin that we want to remove.
Note that the "Remove" button disappears.
It now says, "Marked for removal".
Click the "Esc" key on the top left-hand side of the keyboard.
Read the pop-up window.
It tells us that we need to remove the extensions and reload.
Click "Remove Extensions and Reload".
It is the blue button at the bottom of the pop-up window. The program will remove the extension and reload automatically. Let's confirm that the extension has been removed.
Click on the Lego block icon to go back to the Extension Manager.
Give it a moment to load up.
Click on the "Installed" tab.
Look at the installed extensions.
In our case, we now have no extensions installed in Brackets.
Press "Esc" on the keyboard to exit the Extension Manager.
Now we're back in our document and we can begin making edits or changes to it as we would normally.
This concludes our tutorial on removing a plugin or extension from the Brackets HTML code editor.
