Manage Your Add-Ons

You can view and manage installed add-ons using the Add-On Manager. To open the Add-On Manager, go to the Home tab, and select Add-Ons > Manage Add-Ons.

From the Add-On Manager you can:

  • Open the installed location for add-ons installed in the add-ons installation folder.

  • Open documentation for MathWorks® products.

  • View additional details such as a list of included files for apps and toolboxes.

  • Uninstall add-ons.

The Add-On Manager displays all add-ons that are properly installed in the add-ons installation folder, as well as MATLAB® products and hardware support packages. If you have an app or toolbox installed prior to R2015b, import it for use with R2015b and later by opening the Add-On Manager and clicking Import.

To run an app after you install it, go to the Apps tab and expand the apps gallery by clicking the down arrow to the far right. Then, navigate to your installed app and click the icon. Custom apps that you write or receive from someone else appear in the My Apps section. You can run multiple custom apps concurrently, including multiple instances of the same app.

Change Add-Ons Installation Folder

By default, MATLAB installs

  • MATLAB product add-ons in matlabroot.

  • Hardware support package add-ons and some additional package add-ons in their own custom location. For more information, see Support Package Installation.

  • All other add-ons in the userpath\Add-Ons folder. The userpath is the path returned by the userpath command.

    To change the add-ons installation folder:

    1. On the Home tab, in the Environment section, click Preferences > MATLAB > Add-Ons.

    2. In the Installation Folder field, specify a folder name to which you have write access.

    Note:   If you change your installation folder, add-ons installed in the previously selected folder are no longer accessible from within MATLAB.
