I have a user who can't open excel files directly. IE: When he clicks on the file test.xlsx the excel software will open but the spreadsheet won’t open. It just says ready at the bottom left hand corner. Now if I go file, open, and browse to test.xlsx it opens fine. This issue happens with files on the local box and the network drives.
I have tried the following:
-This issue only happens when you try to click on the file itself - you can go to file open then it will work.
-Doesn’t matter what file it is - local or on the network you cannot click on the file itself.
-Ran a detect and repair - same issue
-uninstalled and reinstalled excel - same issue
-Recreated profile - same issue
