Is it possible to use MSIE's F12 developer tools with a Task Pane app in desktop Excel 2013? RRS feed


  • Hi Shaun Logan,

    The Office add-ins is host in a host process base on the device the add-in runs on. For example, the Office add-ins is run in a Internet Explorer runtime host process like figure below:

    Based on my understanding, we are not able to control the Internet Explorer since it was started by the Office application. If you want to Office add-in to support MSIE's F12 developer tools, I suggest that you submit the feedback from link below:
