Windows-not able to open an excel file 

Sometimes there might be situations where you try to open an excel file and it prompts you to choose an application for opening or viewing the excel file. You might think that Windows would automatically assign the default app for opening excel as Microsoft Excel. But it behaves abnormally sometimes.

Windows fortunately has a fix for this. One has to follow these steps-

  1. Goto the Control Panel.
  2. Open programs.
  3. Choose the Office Application.
  4. And click change.
  5. Then it will ask you whether to repair offline or online.
  6. Choose repair offline it is faster and more often then not it works.

And once it completes the repair you should be good. One thing to note is that before you proceed with these steps ensure that you close all the Office Applications including Sjype , in order to run properly.
