Odd Excel Behavior - Seeking Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I have my computer set to require double click to open folders, files.

Works for everything except for EXCEL files.

 

If I click an Excel file to select (for copy/paste/rename, anything) it opens.

If I click on more than one excel file, they all open.

 

ONLY happens with Excel and I can not find any setting that needs to be changed to stop this behavior.

Drives me nutso! Constantly closing files I did not intend to open.

 

Any suggestions are welcome.

 

win 7/64 bit, Office 2010/Excel 2010

That is strange. I rarely use windows, but I am sure one of our members will have an answer to that.

Sami, have you tried changing the settings to where it takes a single click to open anything and then back to double-click? I've not seen this behavior before but I don't have Excel 2010 to test.

Yes. I tried setting everything to one click.

rebooted

Set all to two clicks

rebooted.

same result for the last couple months.

 

Just one of those wacky things I was just living with...but last Window/Office update seems to have changed behavior to normal.

Tried to record screen behavior and it works properly now.

 

fingers crossed
