add-on

An add-on is a small mini-program that runs together with the application program and extends its functionality. There are many add-ons that extend the well-known application programs with security functions, reporting functions and graphics functions.

An add-on is an added optional module that adds functionality to the existing hardware or enhances the programs capabilities. Such an add-on or plug-in can be added or removed at any time without affecting the original functions. Add-ons can add toolbars or support various graphics formats, animation formats, and video formats. The added plug-ins have their own data structure, which is not part of the software into which it is integrated.
