How to un-hide the AdBlock icon from the browser toolbar

If you can't see the AdBlock icon in the browser toolbar, first make sure that AdBlock is installed. If AdBlock is installed but you don't see the icon, follow these steps to un-hide it.


Chrome

If a puzzle icon does not appear in Chrome's toolbar, please do the following:

  1. Click the Chrome menu (the three stacked bars or dots in the upper right corner of the window).
  2. The AdBlock icon should appear at the top of the menu. Right-click the AdBlock icon and select Show in toolbar.

Is the address bar hiding the icon? If you've followed the steps above and the icon still doesn't appear, the address bar itself is probably hiding it. Put your cursor on the right-hand side of the address bar and drag to the left to make the box shorter. The icons for all of your enabled extensions will appear one by one as the address bar makes room.
