Unable to open Excel files by double clicking the files from my system, I can able to open the file using File-open option only…not able to open the file by 'double click' [no problem with my mouse-double click ] when opening an Excel file
I am getting error like 'There was a problem sending the command to the program"
If you can’t open Microsoft Office Excel files by double-clicking but you can open them with the file options or using the “Open with” option, check the file association. When you install Microsoft Office Excel, by default, will automatically associate XLS files (.xls) and XLSX files (.xlsx) with the program. Open Windows Explorer then right-click an XLS or XLSX file and select “Open with”.
In the “Open with” dialog, select “Microsoft Office Excel” then on the bottom left check “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file” and then click “OK”. After this, the file should now open automatically with Microsoft Office Excel every time you double-click a similar format. Also, check that files open by double-clicking in the Folder Options.
Click “Start”, “Control Panel” then select “Folder Options”. In “Folder Options” dialog, in “General” tab, under “Click items as follows”, make sure “Double-click to open an item (single-click to select)” is selected then click “OK”. If “Single-click to open an item (point to select)” is selected, double-clicking a file will not open it.
