How to Remove Add-Ins in Microsoft Outlook

Posted by Jonh Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Add-ins are small programs used for a specific purpose in different Microsoft applications. For example, there are add-ins for Microsoft Outlook that allow users to send text messages to cell phones or customize the Outlook calendar. However, if an add-in becomes corrupted, it can cause the program using it to experience problems. In addition, add-ins that are not frequently used occupy precious system space. Removing these can help Outlook and the system run more smoothly.
