    When I double click on any excel file, only a grey window opens and not the file. Then, I need to go to file and select the file to view the file. Please help .:confused:

    When you next try it, open the file, when you have grey window open, On the toolbar at the top, go to Window > Arrange > Tiled and you should see your file, then maximise it and close Excel.

    Now the next time you click it you should get the file straight away.
