Question of the week of 6/6 – Excel startup files

Question:  Every time I open an Excel file or start a new Excel workbook, two files automatically pop up. How can I get rid of these files, as it is very annoying to have to close these each time.

Answer: For some reason, the files were placed or saved into an obscure Excel startup folder (user’s nameappdataroamingmicrosoftexcelxstart) on the desktop which automatically starts these files when opening Excel. When these files were deleted, Excel opened normally.
