Excel slow to open workbook when I double-click in Windows


Paul Kraemer

I am using Excel 2007 on a brand new PC (Intel Core 2 Duo; 2.53 GHz; 3.21 GB
RAM; Windows XP Pro). I have installed and started using several
applications already and this PC has been very fast and responsive.

I am having an issue opening workbooks in Excel. If I open Excel first and
then click on the Office button and choos Open, I can open up a workbook very

However, when I double-click on a workbook in Windows (without having Excel
open previously), it takes a *very* long time for the workbook to open. I
just timed it at exactly one minute.

I was wondering if anyone has a clue what might be causing this.

Thanks in advance,

Excel 2007 very slow to open.


Paul - I have the same problem. I have two different versions of Excel on my
computer, so I thought that was the problem. But, after your post, I guess
it's more widespread. If you get a fix, let me know.
