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.
