in the Apps
Once installed, you can then insert the apps you want to use into the current
worksheet. To do this, follow these steps:
1. If the Apps for Office dialog box is not currently open in Excel, open it
by selecting Insert ➪ Apps for Office ➪ See All or press Alt+NSAS.
2. Click the My Apps link in App for Office dialog box.
Excel displays all the Apps for Office currently installed in Excel 2013.
3. Click the app you want to use in your worksheet to select it and then
click the Insert button or press Enter.
Excel then inserts the app into your current worksheet so that you can start
using its features. Some Office apps such as the Merriam-Webster Dictionary
app and QuickHelp Starter open in task panes docked on the right side of the
worksheet window. Others, such as Bing Maps and the Mini Calendar and
Date Picker, open as graphic objects that float above the worksheet.
To close Office apps that open in docked task panes, you simply click the
pane’s Close button. To close Office apps that open as floating graphic
objects, you need to select the graphic and then press the Delete key (don’t
worry — doing this only closes the app without uninstalling it).
Note that after you start using various apps in Excel, they’re added to the
Recently Used Apps section of the Apps for Office button’s drop-down menu.
You can then quickly re-open any closed app that appears on this menu
simply by clicking it.
