Safety
Risk impact

Office - Enable Copy and Paste requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Office - Enable Copy and Paste has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Absolutely insane. It doesn't work. For a basic feature I have to download this and when did it doesn't work. It simply can't even do a thing. It is so frustrating. Hell with this. If Microsoft is not going to bring the copy-paste feature to its inbuild version of MS-Office then I vote for banning of all MS products. This is bizarre.

Please allow people to download Office. Installing addons for basic features is absolutely insane

Most useless thing to have to install. This shows that you basically removed a feature that was already there to make us have to install this bs to enable such a basic thing. This is why people avoid microsoft programs as much as possible.

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
