-In Wordopen the "​Word"​ menu in the top-left of the screen ​and select ​"​Preferences"​. Click on "File Locations"​ under "​Personal Settings" ​and click on "​Startup"​ at the bottom ​of the list. This may list your Startup folder location+The default location of the Startup folder is ~/​Library/​Group Containers/​UBF8T346G9.Office/​User Content/​Startup/​Word. (~/Library refers to the Library folder within your home directory.) You can open it from the Finder by pressing Cmd-Shift-G and copying ​in the path. Alternatively,​ to navigate to it in Finder, hold down Option, click the Go menu, and select ​Library (which is hidden by default), ​and then follow ​the rest of the path.
-If there is no location listed, the default location is ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/User Content/​Startup/​Word ​(i.e.the Library folder within your home directory). The ~/Library folder is hidden by defaultbut you can open it from the Finder by holding down Option, clicking the Go menu, and selecting Library. You can also press Cmd-Shift-G in Finder and copy in the default location to navigate to that folder.+If changes you make to the Startup folder aren't taking effect, you can confirm that Word isn't set to a different location. In Word, open the "​Word"​ menu in the top-left of the screen and select "​Preferences"​. Click on "File Locations"​ under "​Personal Settings"​ and click on "​Startup"​ at the bottom of the list. 
 +Generally, ​no location ​should be listed, ​causing Word to use the default ​location. If another ​location is listed (e.g., ​/Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/​Office/​Startup/​Word, ​from an earlier version of Word), clearing ​the setting it and letting Word use the default location ​may fix installation problems and allow Zotero ​to install the plugin automatically going forward.
