Where to find your Pro Tools plugins on Windows

Location of Avid Pro Tools Plugins on Windows

Often, we get asked how to delete a plugin from the Pro Tools plugins directory on a Windows computer.  To do that, first, browse to:

c:/Program Files/Common Files/Digidesign/DAE/Plug-ins

Here you will find most all of your plugins.  You can now delete troublesome ones, or add ones that need to be manually added.

If you are using Pro Tools 10, you may have AAX Protools plugins.  Those are found at:
