There are two plug-ins you should install to make your citation gathering, writing, and citing references a lot more efficient. These two utilities will enable you to capture references with ease and then incorporate the citations into your Word document.
While it is possible to install this plugin from the desktop software, the directions are more complicated than obtaining the software from your account online. So, log into your EndNote online account, select the Downloads folder, and select the PC or MAC option depending on your operating system.

Windows users: don't worry about the "with Microsoft Explorer Plug-in" note attached to your download link. You don't have to use Internet Explorer.
