New Player Help and Guides
Hi I have windows 8 and my Addon button is not on character screen can someone please explain in easy step by step instructions on how to fix this issue im no computer genious and don't know anything about this and how to change and move program files or anything so please could u explain as easy as possible thank you very much
The Addon button doesn't show on the character selection screen unless you have at least one 3rd party Addon installed (The Blizzard items in the add-on folder don't count.)

What Addons do you think you have installed, and how did you install them? Where is World of Warcraft installed on your computer?

<S> offer's easy to use Clients for both Windows and OS-x, which make managing all your add-ons very simple.

I recommend these clients for those of us that might not be so savvy with these big grey and black box thing-a-majigers ;)

Simply download the Client, intall, and use the client to do all of the work of installation, management and upkeep of all your add-ons. has a brief tutorial for the downloading of the Client and its use.

where did you move it the folder to?
where did you move it the folder to?

Probably the wow/interface/addons folder since that's where the game goes to look for addons.
