How to Speed-Up Loading
For most users, FlowBreeze is not the kind of tool that you use everyday. Every add-in that gets loaded into Excel can slow its startup. To speed things up, you can load FlowBreeze on demand, or unload it when not in use, via the COM Add-ins dialog in Excel, shown in the image below. Toggling the checkbox next to FlowBreeze will load and unload the add-in.
COM Add-ins Dialog
The instructions below show how to gain quick access to this dialog.
- Click the down arrow next to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) and select "More Commands ...", as shown in the image below.
QAT - More Commands
- Under “Choose commands from” select “All Commands” from the drop down list, and then scroll down and select the “COM Add-ins” item from the list, as shown below.
Adding COM Add-ins button to QAT
- Click the Add button, and then OK to close.
The COM Add-ins button will now appear on your Quick Access Toolbar (QAT). Clicking it will open a dialog that lets you load or unload FlowBreeze (or any other COM add-in). When you’re not using FlowBreeze, unloading it will probably let Excel startup faster, so this is a handy tool.
