EndNote 20

Guide to using EndNote reference management software

Cite While You Write (CWYW) Toolbar

The CWYW tools automatically download in Word as part of the EndNote Desktop installation. They should be visible on the Word menu in an EndNote or EndNote 20 tab.

However, on Desktop@UCL computers, or if you are using Desktop@UCL Anywhere, the CWYW tools need to be activated the first time you use Word with EndNote. You can also follow these instructions if you have installed EndNote Desktop but the EndNote tab isn't visible: 

  • In Word, click on the File menu, then Options, then Add-ins.
  • At the bottom of the screen, where it says Manage, check that COM Add-ins is displayed then click Go.
  • Tick the check box for EndNote Cite While You Write and click OK.
  • If the EndNote toolbar does not appear, restart Word.

Click on the EndNote tab to view the CWYW toolbar.

Word menu, showing the EndNote tab on the right hand side.
