This plugin adds “Toggle” as a bulk action for the plugins listing to toggle the activation state for selected plugins.

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ admin menu in WordPress
- From the admin ‘Plugins’ page, select the checkboxes for plugins whose activation state you’d like to toggle, then from the “Bulk Actions” dropdown (found above-left and below-left of the table) choose “Toggle” and press the “Apply” button to submit. Any selected plugins that were active will get deactivated and any that were deactive will get activated.

The “Toggle” bulk action is only available to users who have both the “activate_plugins” and “deactivate_plugins” capabilities, which generally implies administrators. The toggle is also only shown when looking at the “All” or “Update Available” views.
