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
