When I open an Excel file from Windows Explorer, I always get a second Excel window as well. Annoyingly, when I close it, it doesn't close, but the other window does!
This seems to be a common issue:
- Excel 2013 starts up with blank screen when opened from explorer
- Excel 2013 opens blank grey screen along with original workbook.
- Excel Opens Two Instances of File – One Blank?
- Excel 2013 Issue – Opening a worksheet, opens a new blank worksheet too
How can I stop this second window appearing?
