Hide an Office Add-in for PowerPoint

If you don’t want to use an Office add-in for PowerPoint, hide it so it won’t show up in your list of add-ins. If you want to use the add-in again later, you can retrieve it.

Important: New name for apps for Office - Office Add-ins. We are currently updating our products, documentation, samples, and other resources to reflect the platform name change from "apps for Office and SharePoint" to "Office and SharePoint Add-ins". We made this change to better distinguish the extension platform from Office apps (applications). While these changes are taking place, the dialogs and messages you see in your application might be different than what you see in this article.
