Use the Wikipedia App in Word 2013

I just discovered the Wikipedia App today while looking at the Insert tab in Word 2013. It is very easy to search Wikipedia for any thing.

    My Word 2013 does not have it. Is there a way to add it to the insert tab?

    • Steve Chase says:

      Yes, companies can block this 3rd party app from working due to security reasons. That is probably the case.

      Otherwise, you need to have logged in with your Microsoft account (i.e. OneDrive account) for this to work. If you look in the upper right corner of Word 2013 and it says sign in, then you will need to first sign in before you can download any of the Apps. You can create a free account at

    Is there a way to quickly cite the source?

    • Steve Chase says:

      Word 2007, 2010 and 2013 have a bibliography and citations feature. Find it on the References tab. You first insert a citation but it has to be manually added. Then place the bibliography at the section of the Word document you want it.
