Hi all,

I have 2 SPO libraries with identical issue. Both libraries have been created a couple of months ago.

Issue is that when I click on "+new" & choose to create new excel file it starts to open Excel Online.

When I click on "+new" & choose Word file, desktop Word starts to open.

I would need for Excel files to be opened in Excel desktop

I've tested it in 3 browsers - FireFox, Chrome, IE - all have the same issue.

 

I've already activated options "open in application" under Advanced Settings & "open documents..." under "Site Collection features" is activated.

 

Kind regards,
