I just have it disabled normally click Tools->Add-ons at the start of
the day. If I'm going to paly something I <Alt>-<Tab> and either <Enter>
(I'm already positioned ther) or <ALT>-<E>.

Disable is the same, but <alt>-<D> or <Enter> to disable.

It's nice because if you forget to do beorehand, just refresh the screen
after and it acts like you didn't forget.

I like this because it's one less thing from the outside world I have to
keep track of or update, etc.
