xls and xlsx files are not defaulted as Excel files in Windows 10
In Windows 10, xls and xlsx files are not automatically associated to Excel. If you try to open an xls or xlsx file from windows explorer, it open a save as windo rather than booting and opening in Excel.

is there a way to automatically save a cvs file to a XLS file without having to go to file/save as and then changing the file to xls?
Whenever I try to open my excel file it doesn't open directly and asked for path or program and I have to select program excel for the same
can't help me when i double click file excel from explorer can't open. i'm using office professional plus 2016.
Bug - Excel workbooks do not open from Windows Explorer. I recently upgraded from Office 10 to Office 16, and find I cannot open Excel workbooks by double-clicking the filename in Windows Explorer. The workbooks open correctly from within Excel.
For some reason, I cannot get windows 10 to recognize Excel as my default program for .xls or xlsx files
Double-clicking on a .xlsx file in file manager opens Excel, but does not populate it with the contents of the spreadsheet. Word, however, works just fine, so the problem seems to be with Excel.
System: Office 365, Windows 10, Start 10.

Can you upload your file on the Internet and give us the link?
I have a problem when I try to save. Often, it stops responding and I lose data.

Just to let you know that for a while there I had a lot of difficulty with Windows 10 updates. Anytime my computer (upgraded from Windows 7) obtained a new Windows 10 update, MS Office file associations would be lost and my custom settings such as keyboard shortcuts would disappear.
It took some time to fix it all, and I have not noticed it happening lately. Please take these issues into account when doing OS updates in the future, however.
