Steps to add Excel to your right-click “Open with …” list for opening XL2 measurements


While having screen sharing sessions with customers, they sometimes ask how I added Excel (or any other spreadsheet program to my "Open with ..." list.

It is a big time savings when working with XL2 measurements.

Here are the steps
  1. Right-click on file that you want to add a new "Open with ..." choice. Typically a .txt file for XL2 measurements
  2. Scroll to the bottom and select "Choose another app"

  8. Excel is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16 (this is for a Office 365 32-bit installation, file path may vary. Search for Excel.exe)
