How to remove installed extensions in JDeveloper 11g ?

Windows 7 Enterprise
Oracle JDeveloper

From Help > Check For Updates menu, you can install new extensions either from 'Search Update Centers' or 'Install From Local File'.

When you want to remove those extensions from IDE manually, you can goto filesystem & should remove
the related .jar files. This would completely remove the extension.

The location in my machine is - C:\Oracle\Middleware11g\jdeveloper\jdev\extensions.

Alternatively, the extension can be disabled or enabled from JDeveloper.
From Tools > Preferences > Extensions the list of installed extensions can be found.
Deselect desired extension to stop loading in IDE.

In future, if same extension want to use again, this can be enabled from here.
