Loading Extensions

Load an Extension

Many extensions are provided on disk and can be loaded by simply selecting and enabling the extension of your choice.


Autoloading an extension will allow the extension to be started at startup by the application. For tools you use commonly it can be a benefit to auto-load, however tools you only use rarely should be enabled only when needed to conserve resources.

Remote Extensions

Remote extensions are extensions managed by NVIDIA and are offered through a remote service. This allows for the immediate installation and delivery of updates without the need to update the app itself.
