EndNote Guide: Installing EndNote on Campus PC or UC Laptop

Additional Files

The Library provides some modified and additional Filters and Styles.

Note that any zipped files need to be 'unzipped' i.e. right-click and choose the extract command. Copy these files to your EndNote file folder location.

If you just need the APA 7th style, note that this is not 'zipped'. Just save it into your styles folder.

Installation on Campus/UC Laptop

Before you start installation

  • Always back up your EndNote libraries before doing anything major with EndNote.
  • Ensure Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, Outlook) is closed.
  • If you have an earlier version of EndNote, you don't need to uninstall it, although it is recommended. The new version will override the old one and you will not  lose all your EndNote Library/Libraries saved in the old version.


Install EndNote on a campus PC/UC Laptop

  1. Click on the Start button and select Software Center.
  2. Select Clarivate Analytics EndNote 20 from the program list.
  3. Click on Install  

The Install will complete, close the software center window.  

  1. When the installation has finished, do the following in this order (you need to do this only once to ensure the Endnote Toolbar is installed into Word):
    • start Endnote
    • open an Endnote Library
    • Start Word and check the Endnote toolbar is present.

If you encounter problems after installing EndNote, see the help given on our problems page.
