I have a few Add-ins that worked fine in Excel 2013. I saved the AddIn files and copied them to me my new laptop with 2016 Excel.

I browsed an existing add in and it told me the Add in Directory was:
C:\Users\Jrgreen\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns

So I tried moving my add ins to that location, but ADDINS is not visible. I googled it and it said to go to VIEW/ORGANiZE . . . show hidden folders, i dont see that option either.
