Go to File>Options and select Add-ins. You will see all the Word add-ins you have installed in Word 2010. There are lists of all active, inactive, and disabled add-ins. if you click on one of the add-in, you will see some information of this add-in, but not for managing it.

I have tried to remove an add-in as described above and receive a dialog that says I must be an administrator and I can do nothing.
I am logged in as an administrator, the only user on my laptop. My OS is Windows 7.

I followed the instructions here but the Remove button for the add-in I want to remove is grayed out. I tried unchecking it first (which unloads it), but no difference. I'm stuck.

I found a Microsoft link that solved my problem. It turns out an add-in can't be removed if it refers to a file in the Startup folder. I directly removed the file the add-in referred to (a template) and that fixed it.

Using word 2010 have active application Add-ins. also in customize ribbon - main tabs, I have the Add-ins box checked. However I do not see an Add-ins tab. last tab I see is the View tab. anything under the View is not showing. I could get Developer to show but I don't need that one. I need the Add-ins

I am an administrator for 24 lab machines with Excel 2010 and I have an add in that is required for our labs. How can i add it, so that all students can see it each time they log on?
I have tried to add it in default users app data, but they still need to turn it on each time they log on

When I click on Options, there is no add-ins. I have a trial version. Is there any way I could install an add-in feature on my Word? I checked but could not find one.

I am afraid that you are using the Office Starter version. :)
