    Hi Filip, Would you be able to check something for me? I've had the same problem (its a one of the KB updates causing it) so I reverted back to the W8.1. The slow opening was bad but the worst thing was that I was unable to get external data using MS query (Excel just stopped everytime). Can you please check if this is working now? Get External Data -> From Other Sources -> From Microsoft Query. After clicking this command Excel just stopped (didn't display any window):/ Thanks

    Thanks a lot for the Cortana tip!
    This issue was diving me crazy, it took around 7 secs for any excel file to open if I double click on it (without Ms. Excel being open) or if I open it from my Ms. Outlook. I disabled Cortana (from the Cortana settings), and restarted. Problem solved!

    I have Windows 10 Pro (with the latest update), and I had the Excel file problem. I disabled Cortana and restarted to solve it. Now, regarding your external data issue, I tested it on my Excel 2010, and I could get the Microsoft Query Data Source selection without any crash.

    Hi, after disabling Cortana, this option works fine on my computer.

    I am from China. I find the perfect solution. ie, you don't have to disable Cortana.

    1. Change the (default) value of the following key:

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Sheet.12\shell\Open\command]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Sheet.8\shell\Open\command]
    to:
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\EXCEL.EXE" "%1"

    2. Remove or backup the command subkey
    3. Remove or backup the ddexec key

    Thanks Vickylily for your input Certainly there is something wrong with these values. I've left the Cortana on but I've changed back the default file format from xlsm to xlsx and it works. So in my situation there is something wrong with HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.SheetBinaryMacroEnabled I suppose...

    That solved it for me. Except for Office 365 I used:

    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Sheet.8\shell\Open\command]
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office 15\\root\\office15\\Excel.exe\" \"%1\""
    Thanks Vickylily.

    What's the issue? is this Windows related
