Manually enabling the FotoWeb Desktop plugin for Microsoft Office

With Microsoft Office installed on a Windows PC, users can place files from FotoWeb into a Word document or PowerPoint presentation directly from a side panel in those applications. Normally the plugin is automatically registered so it will be shown on the Insert ribbon in Word and PowerPoint when these applications are run.

Because the Office plugin is installed per user, however, a user who does not see the FotoWeb icon on the Insert ribbon in Office can manually install the FotoWeb Desktop plugin for Office like this:


  • Right-click the FotoWeb Desktop icon in the system tray
  • Choose Help | Install FotoWeb Office plugin...
