Fork the project and modify the source if you want different behavior because... Well there isn't some sort of settings page :)

Find these variables at the top of github-stars.user.js:

// Execute directly on pages matching one of these:
const activateDirectlyOn = [
  '', '', '',
  '', /^https:\/\/.*\.stackexchange\.com/,
  /^https:\/\/(www.)?google\..*\/search/, '',
  '', '', '',

// Otherwise wait for Control + Alt + G:
const isTheHotkey = e => e.ctrlKey && e.altKey && e.code === 'KeyG';

// Shoutout to for kindly providing the badges!
const badgeUrl = '{userName}/{repoName}.svg?style=social&label=Star';
You can’t perform that action at this time.
