Multiple Excel Files are automatically opened at startup

October 2016


When I run any Excel files, 4 other files are automatically opened at the same time. What can be done?


  • Look for the "XLSTART" folder your hard drive ... It is in the Excel installation directory.
  • Clean its content (Don't forget to make a copy of the files)

Thanks to cousinhub29 for this tip
