Excel files open in Internet Explorer
Posted on 2011-05-06
If I open a link to an Excel document through Internet Explorer and choose to open the file, it does so in Internet Explorer. How do I make it so that this link will open in Excel?
I have read this article support.microsoft.com/kb/162059 and tried the registry fix but it seems to have no effect on Windows 7. Previously in XP this could be changed through the 'Open in Browser' advanced option, however that doesn't exist in Windows 7.
Configuration is Win7, Office 2007 and IE 8.
