Is there a way to find the name of the current theme in Google Chrome?

"I have setup theme in Chrome, but it was awhile ago, probably when Chrome got official support for themes.
I can't find the way to get the name of my current theme installed. I want to use same theme on other machines, but don't know which one is it."

Type this on your address bar and click enter. You get the name of your current theme under the 'Appearance' section"

"Here is how to find out the current theme via the chrome.management API.
You need to run this from an extension which has the management permission in its manifest.

CODE, e.g. run in JS Console

chrome.management.getAll(function (extensionInfoArray) {
extensionInfoArray.forEach(function (extensionInfo) {
if (extensionInfo.type === ""theme"" && extensionInfo.enabled) {

OUTPUT in JS Console

Object {
description: """",
enabled: true,
homepageUrl: ""chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hnfhcmjkebafbfikmbkhdpbmfpfjgiog"",
hostPermissions: Array[0], id: ""hnfhcmjkebafbfikmbkhdpbmfpfjgiog""…}

"Go into the Chrome Store and install ""Extensions Manager(aka Switcher)""

This utility will tell you not only which THEME you have installed, but will allow you to have multiple themes which you can switch between, as desired.

In addition, the ""Extensions Manager(aka Switcher)"" also shows all EXTENSIONS & APPLICATIONS you currently have installed and which ones are active and which are turned off.

You can also ACTIVATE, DEACTIVATE or UNINSTALL your Extensions and/or Applications from within this manager."

"There is very easy way to find the name of the current chrome theme.Open folder
""C:\Documents and Settings\""USER NAME""\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions"". There are folders which each one represents extension you have installed.Browse them and in theme one it is another folder with name like this 1.0_0. And in this final folder is file ""manifest.json"". So open it with notepad and you will see the required name."
