Guide to using EndNote reference management software

Cite While You Write (CWYW) Toolbar

If you are using a computer which has EndNote desktop software installed, the CWYW tools should automatically have been included in Word as part of the installation.

On Desktop@UCL computers, or on Desktop@UCL Anywhere, the CWYW tools need to be activated the first time you use Word with EndNote:

  • 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.
