Office add-ins help you personalize your documents and streamline the way you access information on the web.

When you enable an add-in, it adds custom commands and new features to Office programs that help increase your productivity. Because add-ins can be used by hackers to do malicious harm to your computer, you can use add-in security settings to change their behavior.

How to view installed add-ins

To view add-ins, click File > Options > Add-ins.
