moderated Epub books question


multi 85
 

Hi friends
So I want to read a book in epub format, and I don't really want to
use readers like thorium because I'd like somehow for the book to be
displayed in a browser.
So there is a chrome extension called epub reader for Chrome or
something, and I downloaded it and installed it, but, I can't then get
to it to tell it to open the epub file in Chrome.
If I choose the Epub file and make Chrome my default browser and say
open with Chrome, Chrome always treats the epub book as if I'm
downloading it, even though it's already on my computer.
The instructions for the extension are not things that I understand,
since it says, open Chrome, click on the epub reader extension icon in
the browser toolbar, but I don't have a toolbar or am I somehow being
stupid?
Normally, a toolbar is something like in Microsoft Edge where you get
all those weird buttons after tabbing from the address bar, so you
press alt-d and then tab. For some reason, my Google Chrome doesn't
have this? Should it?
I've never installed any other extensions before, so I'm not sure how
Google Chrome extensions are supposed to work.
I don't have another computer with google chrome to compare, and it
wasn't anything that bothered me since I never thought I'd want to
use, or need to have a toolbar.
Thanks
Multi

If you have installed the extension, hit the f10 key and arrow left
until you hear the name of the extention and hit enter and that should
get you in -- I have never used that particular one, so I don't know
how to use it.

Thanks John it does work. I wonder why there is no mention on FS
Google Chrome training sessions or anywhere about f10, and, there
didn't seem to be any section on how to manage or use extensions at
all?

Yeah but if you think of it, there are extensions for translation, all
sorts of useful things, and I tried installing them but never could
work out how to even start using one haha! FS should maybe do a course
on it because, somehow a browser is seeming to become more than a
browser.
I also tried installing this one they are always advertising on
youtube, grammarly, but that doesn't seem to help or work at all.
But again though, it might be that we just have no idea how to
actually even start using it. It isn't correcting or helping me
correct any grammar or mistakes I'm doing so far, so I don't even know
if it's on or what it's supposed to be doing or if it's doing
anything. Mad.
