    "Why not just reinstall Office since that seems to be the problem."
    You could try the faster "Repair" process too.
    Did both- no change.

    As expected, it opens the web page in my default browser.

    UPDATE- This problem is not limited to Excel, so it's possibly back to Windows 10 as the problem
    I received some emails containing image files, and clicking on any of them normally would open the file with the Windows default program, but like Excel, I keep getting the "how do you want to open this file?" every time.

    I get a feeling of déjà vu when I see this thread:

    keeps popping up despite default! - Windows 10 Forums

    perhaps there are insights there?

    Thanks, I did look there when you suggested it earlier. The only thing I haven't tried is to create a new user/profile.
