Hello and thank you for using Just Answer.

Please try the following:

Click the “View” tab.
In the “Advanced settings” box, Uncheck the “Hide extensions for known file types” check box.
Click OK.

Now Right click the XLS file, and choose “Properties”.

In the “General” tab, click the “Change” button. Here you will find a list of programs, choose the related Office program. If you don’t find it in the list, click the “browse” button and locate Excel 2010.

Click to select the “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file” check box if it is not selected.

Click OK.

If this does not work please reply to me and let me know so we can try something else.

Thank You


Hallo en bedankt voor het gebruik van gewoon antwoord.

Probeer het volgende:
klik op de "Start"-knop, in de "Search", typ "Folder Options" en je kan openen "Folder Options".
Klik op de tab 'Weergave'.
In de "Geavanceerde instellingen" vak, schakelt u de "Verberg extensies voor bekende bestandstypen" in.
Klik op OK.

Klik met de rechtermuisknop het XLS-bestand, en kies "Eigenschappen".

In het tabblad "Algemeen", klik op de knop "Change". Hier vindt u een lijst van programma's te vinden, kiest u de betreffende Office-programma. Als u het niet vinden in de lijst, klik op de knop "Bladeren" en zoek Excel 2010.

Schakelt u het selectievakje 'Gebruik altijd het geselecteerde programma te openen dit soort bestand "check in als dit niet is geselecteerd.

Klik op OK.

Als dit niet werkt kunt u reageren op mij en laat me weten, zodat we iets anders proberen.

dank U
