How can I tell a plugin is being used?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to list the plugins that have been loaded or are being used? I've recently installed the OptiPNG plugin (copied the .exe & .dll into the FileTypes subdirectory) but I don't know how to tell it's actually being used.


Also, does 64bit Paint.net require 64bit plugins? I'm using Windows 10 64bit and paint.net installs in "C:\Program Files" (not (x86)) but I can't tell if the OptiPNG plugin is 64bit or not (or if it matters).


Ok.. My bad. It's easy to tell that this plugin has been loaded by the "Optimized PNG (*.png)" file type available during Save As.


Other than that... is there a List Loaded Plugins option somewhere?

Yes - use the Plugin Browser plugin. It lists the installed plugins.

You can relax about the 32-bit/64-bit issue, they work everywhere equally :D

Please note that BoltBait's suggestion doesn't include filetype plugins.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
