I've loaded up a lot of unnecessary plugins, and I'm ready to get rid of them. I want to delete all the third-party plugins from the system folder and start with a fresh system folder (9.x; 9.1 preferably). The only way I can see to do this is either go through manually and pick out the third-party extensions, or reinstall the system. Is there another way? Thanks in advance.

Hi Drake,
You can go to the extensions manager, select <OS 9.1 All> as current extension set, go to the file menu and select <duplicate set>. This will set your current system extensions back to the OS 9.1 default and put everything else in the disabled control panels and extensions folder, which you can then trash.
hope this helps
dave

Thanks, ddiokno. I thought about that as well. It's nice to have the reassurance. Thanks again.

Sometimes, though, it is better to do a "clean install" and then move preferences and other essential extensions, application support , and control panels, but the extensions manager does what you need it to do (which I'm sure it will), great!
