I installed the full Libre Office (4.1) on new mini-pc last December running Windows7 Pro 64-bit.
My method of accessing all document types ever since first using a PC, is to double-click on them, which uses the Filetype Association to launch the Associated App opening the document at the same time, as I found it the most productive way of working.
But when I click on a xls or xlsx now, Libre opens the document in ‘Writer’ which obviously is wrong. I am able to open Calc directly and then use its dialog to open the Excel file, but that is longwinded.
Windows ‘set Default Programs’ >LibreOffice4.1 states ‘This program has 48 out of 65 defaults’, and shows all Microsoft Excel filetypes, set to ‘Current Default’ = ‘LibreOffice Calc’ - so why do Excel files try to use ‘Writer’ ? and how do I fix the problem ?
