Whatever this Onion Browser Button thing is, this is not from the Tor Project and is possibly malware, stealing your data, etc. so I would suggest removing it ASAP.

If you want to run Tor in Chrome on Windows 10, you need to start Tor Browser and then start Chrome. You will need to then add a socks 5 proxy to Chrome. Google doesn't make that easy. The socks proxy will be port 9150. If you close Tor Browser, the proxy will stop. By this way none of this is a suggested way of doing things.

The point of Tor is anonymity online. By using a browser that is different from what everyone else uses and is untested, you will be greatly reducing the chances that you will be anonymous.

  • I can install Tor Browser, but I can't to open because of McAfee antivirus is blocking Tor.exe. And I can't to change the policy to put Tor.exe in the Whitelist, because I'm not administrator. Feb 23, 2020 at 12:12
  • To use Tor-Buttom, I have renamed file "Tor.exe" to "Tor.ex". And I have updated run.js to considering "tor.ex". And then it works. Can I rename file "Tor;.exe" to "tor.ex" on Tor Browser to be Ok for McAfee antivirus? Feb 23, 2020 at 12:19
