Is there a way to remove an excel add in?  I know that I can uncheck the addin box in Excel that loads it, but I want to delete it entirely.  The MS site says to go to Programs and select "Change" but I don't have that option.  The only thing I can do is completely delete Excel, and I don't want to do that.  Thanks for your help.

It depends on what type of add-in it is.

 

In File > Options > Add-ins you can see the path of each add-in.

You can then open that folder in File Explorer and delete the add-in file.
