inherited from OOo. affects any LibO release.
the "Tools/Extension manager" menu item cannot be assigned to any keyboard shortcut or toolbar button.
if you select "Tools/Customize/Keyboard" or "Tools/Customize/Toolbars/Add" you will find that Extension Manager never appears in any of the available command lists.
Thank you for reporting this bug.
I also can't find it. It would be a improvement to have.
I'd like to hear impressions from a developer... could it be an easy hack?
"extension manager" not yet available as a custom menu item.
tested on 220.127.116.11 and 4.2.0 master Sept.10.
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.
Thank you and apologies for the noise
Checking the menu xml, Extensions Manager doesnt have an uno command and instead is "service:com.sun.star.deployment.ui.PackageManagerDialog".
@Maxim: is there a means of setting a shortcut to such an entry and having it accessible in the customization dialog?

Currently I'm not aware of any way to add this to the customization dialog. This "service:" thing is not a name of an internal command, but just a URL of a service. As a workaround it's possible to manually edit the toolbar or accelerators xml. Another option is to create a macro that executes this URL, and add a button to this macro to the toolbar.
a macro could be then converted as an extension...
and extension can be bundled with LibO
IMHO the extension manager deserves to be a standard toolbar button.

Well, I meant in its current state. Of course we can create a new command that will internally call this service, and use that new command for the menu, instead of directly referencing the service.

I would believe that would be the easiest solution if it is possible and simple.
may we label this as an easy hack?

I've see you put yourself in the "Assigned to" field.
that means that you are going to try fixing it and provide a patch.
is that correct?
Yes, I'm working to this patch. I'm trying to add a shortcut.
For the record, Feyza’s patch is at https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/23376
great news!!! I hope that patch will be merged soon!!!
So the patch only assigns the extension manager to Ctrl + Alt + E, and as an UNO command hasnt been created, a user wont be able to modify the shortcut in the customize dialog, similar to Ctrl + F for the find toolbar.
Ok, I see... not yet perfect but that's still better than nothing
Feyza committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#58845 Added shorcut for Extension Manager
It will be available in 5.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at

improved but not yet fixed.

This bug has been in ASSIGNED status for more than 3 months without any
activity. Resetting it to NEW.
Please assigned it back to yourself if you're still working on this.
<Ctrl>+<Alt>+E shortcut is assigned. But UNO command is needed to allow Customization. As noted in bug 142182 the <alt>+E is often os/DE keyboard mapped for 'deadkey' use. Annoying that LO blocks that usage without ability to reassign it via customization.
Closing remainder here in preference for tdf#142182
I tested the shortcut: Ctrl+Alt+E. It works for opening Extension Manager.
