Team Foundation Server TEAM tab is removed every time Excel is opened

if like me, you use TFS and Excel to manage your WorkItems, and maybe your TEAM tab is removed every time Excel is opened. To solve this :

1. Check if this Registry key is on 3 (autostart).
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\TFCOfficeShim.Connect.5\LoadBehavior (DWORD)

2. Enable TFS plugin in Excel :
– Go to File / Options / Add-ins
– in the bottom of screen, select Manage COM Add-ins, and click on the GO button.
– Check Team Foundation Ass-in and click on OK button confirm.

That’s all 😉
