Gnome Tweaks 40 no longer manages extensions and uses this tool instead

Gnome Tweaks, one of the must-have apps for configuring Ubuntu, will remove support for GNOME Shell Extensions with the release of version 40.

This means that the next Ubuntu release that ships with Gnome 40 and later will require you to use a different tool to manage Gnome Shell Extensions.

If you’ve tried Fedora 34, you should see the prompt “Extension management moved to GNOME extensions” the first time you launch Gnome Tweaks.
