A couple of excel 2010 questions

I'd like excel to open in File view rather than Home. 99/100 I want to work on an existing previously opened file.. is this possible?

Also I keep losing my recently used workbooks list. I'm assuming its something I'm running but can't find out what...any ideas..?

I do run CCleaner frequently but I've tested this and it has no effect.

Thanks

I don't know about Excel 2010, but if you go to the Start icon (Top Left) in 2007 Excel and click on the Advanced link, then traverse down to General and look at Start up. That will probably help you.

Sorry, after clicking on the Start Icon, click on Excel Options first then do the bit I suggest!

Hi, Thanks for this. I can't see a start button but I've looked in options and general but there is'nt a start up option that I can see.

By Start Button I mean the one that is Top Left Hand Side (Coloured), click that then go to Excel Options. Having said that, the layout for 2010 is probably somewhat different to that of 2007, in which case I can't be of any further use. Hope you get it sorted!

I have to say that in just checking with CCleaner, it did in-fact, take all the recently opened files from the Recently opened list in Excel 2007.

Thats right. but you can turn it off in the options area so that it ignores ms office.

thanks

That was something I hadn't thought of, though have to admit, it doesn't matter an awful lot to me whether the recently opened files are are showing or not these days!

Thanks

I think I've found the culprit. Its very similar to the CCleaner solution. I also run Advanced system care now and again. It also has an option to turn off its affect on MS office programs. Not had a problem since I adjusted it.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
