How do I uninstall Chrome's new Bookmark Manager?

Google has been working on a new bookmark manager for Chrome. This upcoming bookmark manager is now on the Chrome Web Store as an extension before it is integrated into Chrome by default. This new bookmark manager extension looks beautiful but it does have its own shortfall for now e.g. inability to sort bookmarks by title.

So what if you wished to uninstall this new bookmark manager? As far as I know, you cannot remove this extension from chrome://extensionsbecause the extension is not listed at all! Do follow the below steps for the removal of this extension:

  1. Type chrome://flags on the address bar.
  2. Search for Enable Enhanced Bookmarks option.
  3. Disable it.
  4. Close and restart Chrome.
  5. Type chrome://extensions on the address bar. You should see the bookmark manager extension now.
  6. Remove the bookmark manager extension.
Hope it helps.
