    The instructions work as indicated for people who have Microsoft accounts. But how do we install Trimspaces for a company that, for sound security reasons, doesn't allow users to have access to the Microsoft Store?

  2. Paul Stevens says:

    As of 3/9/15, the link above is bad, but here's a direct link to Trim Spaces:

  3. A Formerly Happy User says:

    You used to have this free for download - I'm on a restricted system that won't allow access to the MS Store. Why not just keep at least an old version available on the site?


  4. Steven Smith says:

    Please make the FREE version available for download from your site again. Most companies have restrictions on download sites such as CNet or Tucows as well as the MS Store. Admittedly, this should have been a native function in Excel, but it is desperately needed for many users who don't need the full functionality of the Add-ins Suite. Thank you!
