Problem with xlsx files
Permalink  
 


First of all,  it is only fair to point out that I can just about turn a computer on, so my apologies if I am asking something with an answer that is blindingly obvious. But here goes...

 

I have Excel 2007 and when I try to open an xlsx file I get a drop down menu.

 

So I press open

 

And get another menu that asks what do I want to do with the file and gives the options of open, save or save as.

 

So I press open and the file opens.

 

Is there any way that I can simply click on the xlsx file and have it open directly?

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

It is a very foggy memory, but as I recall somewhere in Windows there's a way to associate a file type with a default program. That may not be very helpful. If someone can't help you soon, I will try to do a little research.

What version of Windows are you running?
