Have you ever opened a webpage only to have all sorts of multimedia on the page just start playing? Chrome has a hidden setting that was designed to prevent situations just like that. Read on to find out how to enable it.
Enabling Click To Play Plugins in Chrome
Click on the settings wrench and select the settings menu item.
Then you will need to click on the advanced settings link.
Scroll down until you can see the privacy section, then click on the Content settings button.
A new Window will pop-up, scroll down until you see the Plug-ins section. Then change the plug-ins option from Run automatically to Click to play.
Now navigate to any website that requires a plugin, like YouTube, and you will have to click on the content to activate the plug-in.
That’s all there is to it.
