Hi Richard. It is opening with Notepad
Excel does not show up, even when expanded.
No, I have tried this several times, and then again now. It is not in program files. The file is in here: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office. So I have gone in there and clicked on Excel, but then when I try to open the document, I get a message saying that this app cannot run on my computer. (But Excel is on my computer and it is usable when I open it).
just did that. excel is still not showing up as possibility for default...
yes, but i don't want to do that because it always affects my outlook program.
I think I would rather deal with this problem than re-install. I can't explain the outlook concerns, but i have re-installed before, and it always causes more trouble than the original problem. but thank you anyway
ok. thank you
