I have installed the latest version of QGIS wien 2.8. Windows 8.1 downloaded the stand alone version from official QGIS website.

I had to uninstall the latest one I had because Openlayers plugin was downloaded and installed but one day it stopped appearing in my toolbar.

So I uninstalled and removed everything and installed again, but the problem remains, just as with the previous one.

Can anybody help me with this issue?

  • Is the plugin activated?

  • plugin is installed, do I have to activate it? how? In other plugins, I didn't have to activate them. If you mean doing right click and activate it for the toolbar, it doesn't show up in the options. Can anybody help me please? Commented Jul 5, 2015 at 14:51
