How to Re-enable an Add-in that is Disabled or Missing

Is your add-in missing? Learn how to re-enable it with this step-by-step tutorial

Excel Add-ins can get disabled when Excel crashes. There is a Disabled Items window on the Excel Options, Add-ins menu that will allow you to re-enable or reactivate the add-ins that have been disabled.

Checkout my video on how to install an Excel add-in:

I also have an article with a step-by-step guide on how to install add-ins.

If this does NOT resolve the problem for you, then you might be impacted by an Office Security update that was released in July 2016 by Microsoft. Checkout this article for more details and instructions on how to fix it.

Please leave a comment below with any questions. Thanks!

    The Excel add-in that disappeared on me actually did not appear in the Disabled Add-in list, and it wasn't in the Add-Ins checklist, however, in the Add-Ins checklist, I clicked Browse and found the file for my add-in. Then it appeared in the checklist and I could check it to enable it. Thank you for making this video! It helped me navigate to the Add-Ins checklist in the first place.
