How to open file:
Many times we may need to open the Excel file that is already stored or saved in the computer’s storage or memory in the Excel program. Be it for editing or printing etc. Now we will see how to do that.
First, launch your Excel program. Then click Office Button or File tab then see a list of recently saved or saved Excel files in the computer storage like above screenshot. From here, if the file you want to open now exists, then click on its name and see that it has been opened. (Note that the list you see here is basically a list of the most recent files stored on the computer. As new files are saved, they will move down one by one. That is, the most recent file will be at the top of the list.)
According to the original method, after clicking on the Office Button or File tab, click on the Open button from the left side panel and click on the Browse button.
Then it will appear like the above screenshot. This time, go to the location where your Excel file is stored in the computer storage, select the file and click on the Open button.
