  3. Press “Go…” and make the changes.
  4. For some add-ins you’ll need to restart Outlook for changes to take effect.

Note 1: See this post if you get the error “The connected state of Office Add-Ins registered in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE cannot be changed.”.

Note 2: You certainly do not have all add-ins enabled for Outlook to work properly. Disabling unneeded add-ins can actually speed up Outlook as well. For an overview see: Which Outlook add-ins do I really need?
