    New context menu - missing new excel worksheet?


    Hi, after upgrading to new version of office (from 2013 to 2016) i have no new excel worksheet in new(folder) of context menu. Could please somebody help me out on this?

    I followed Shaun s tutorial for removing and reinstating New context menu https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/8012-new-context-menu-add-remove-windows-10-a.html

    I have also noticed that some programs report that i have more items in the new context menu than i really have! Is this normal?

    Hello Sol, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Yeah, that tutorial will only restore the default New context menu items.

    The .reg file below should restore the Microsoft Excel Worksheet New context menu item for Office 2016.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\Excel.Sheet.12\ShellNew]
    "FileName"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\\Root\\VFS\\Windows\\ShellNew\\excel12.xlsx"

    Sol,

    Try uninstalling both the Office 2013 and 2016 using the Fix it Tool or manually from Microsoft below to make sure that both Office and 2013 and 2016 are fully uninstalled. Afterwards, see if reinstalling 2016 again will have it working again.

    OK i solved it! Using right click enhancer program i noticed that the .xlsx key was missing! (but in the regedit he was still present!) i deleted the .xlsx key from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and than repaired office installation. Everything works fine now

    Shaun thanks for the time and inspiration, regards Sol!
