Extensions and apps

What are browser extensions?

An extension (or add-on) is a small program that provides additional features for the browser. You can use extensions selected by the browser, or extensions from the Catalog.

The Extensions tab in the Tableau lists the main categories of extensions:

Actions with extensions

You can enable or disable the extensions selected by the browser on the Extensions page (to go to this page, click the button
