Excel 2013 does not open a spreadsheet when double clicking on the file

We recently upgraded our computers from Office 2007 to Office 2013 manually, then removed 2007. When double clicking on a spreadsheet, say on the desktop for instance, Excel the software opens but the page is blank. When opening the same document from within Excel, the file opens. Is there a fix so that we can double click on the file and have it open?

See if this helps.  The problem seems to have happened before.
