  • Click on Content
  • Click on ExtensionManager
  • Copy the name of the plugin you want to unregister e.g. extensionList[“com.emc.EMCStoragePlugin”]
  • Click on UnregisterExtension
  • In the text field paste the text into the box and delete all but the part in quotes e.g.com.emc.EMCStoragePlugin
  • click InvokeMethod
