To change the site access permissions for an extension

  1. At the top right, choose the Extensions Hub to see the list of extensions installed on Microsoft Edge.

  2. For the extension you want to change site access permissions, select ... More menu and point to This can read and change site data.

  3. Choose the required access permission for the selected extension:

    • When you click the extension: This setting only allows the extension to access the current site in the open tab or window when you click the extension. If you close the tab or window, you’ll have to click the extension to turn it on again.

    • On [current site]: Allow the extension to automatically read and change data on the current site.

    • On all sites: Allow the extension to automatically read and change data on all sites.
