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. 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.
To manage an individual add-on, click the options button to the right of the add-on and select from the available options. Options include:
|Open Folder||Open the folder location.||This option is only available for apps, toolboxes, functions, collections, and Simulink® models.|
|Open Documentation||Open the documentation for the add-on, if available.|
|View in Add-on Explorer||View the add-on in the Add-on Explorer window.|
|View Getting Started Guide||View the Getting Started guide.||This option is only available for toolboxes that include a Getting Started guide.|
|Setup||Set up the add-on.||This option is only available for add-ons where additional setup is required.|
|Version||View and select the currently enabled version of the add-on.|
MATLAB displays a check mark next to the currently enabled version of the add-on. Click a version number to enable it. The Add-on Manager disables all other installed versions of the add-on.
This option is only available for add-ons that
have multiple versions installed. For more information about
installing multiple versions of an add-on, see
|Enabled||Enable or disable the add-on.|
This option is only available for apps, toolboxes, functions, collections, and Simulink models.
|Uninstall||Uninstall the add-on.|
To run an app after you install it, go to the Apps tab and expand the apps gallery by clicking the down arrow on 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.

To change the default folder:
If you change this folder, add-ons installed in the previously selected folder are no longer accessible from within MATLAB.
Online™, all supported MathWorks products and support packages are pre-installed and reinstalling them
is not supported. The default installation folder for all other add-ons is
/MATLAB Add-Ons. Changing the default installation folder or
customizing installed add-ons is not supported.
