"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

open Windows Explorer
Click organize/layout
Uncheck details pane and preview pane

Open Excel
click File/Open
Click Organize/layout
Uncheck details and Preview Pane
