Hi all,

 

Weird one, when ever I try to open an excel document they never open first time. I have to open excel app first then open the file!

 

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

@AB21805 you probably lost the file extension association. Open file explorer, right click any spreadsheet, select 'open with' and check the box 'always use this app'.
