    Excel 2016 Force Legacy Workbook Sharing or Ribbon button with Policy?


    Hello all,

    I am trying to migrate a bunch of users to Office 2016. Upon doing this i noticed that the Share Workbook functionality in Excel 2016 has been replaced with co-authoring.
    We use the share workbook functionality for editing files with multiple users on a local network. Thus we are obligated to use the Legacy Workbook Sharing.

    1. Is there a way to use a Office Policy to ensure co-authoring is disabled and will this enable the Legacy workbook sharing?

    2. If not; Is there a policy or another way to enforce the Share Workbook (Legacy) button in the Ribbon for all domain users?

    :)

  2. Defender AV preventing Excel 2013/2016 saving shared workbooks

    Since windows 1709 update Excel keeps throwing up a sharing violation error when saving shared workbooks on network folders.

    Troubleshooting so far:

    Added folder to "trusted locations" in Trust Center - no joy

    Ticked "allow network folder trust" in Trust Center - no joy

    add XLSX file type, Excel.exe process and folder location to Defender exceptions - no joy

    Turn off Realtime Protection - saves fine no problems

    Turning off workbook sharing works but this is not an option, nor is disabling defender

    what is it in particular about shared workbooks that defender doesn't like that I can add an exception for?

    Some but not all Excel workbooks appear in taskbar.


    Welcome to Windows Ten Forums, ju severn and restexas.

    Don't know why you're having the issue and I don't have Office installed on my 10, but have in 8.1. I also have not had that many Excel workbooks opened to know if perhaps there's a limit to the list set in Office or in 10. I worked more with seperate sheets in a workbook rather than separate workbooks. However, for now to keep you working without the distraction, could you open a separate instance of Excel and work with it that way? Somewhat of a PITA I know, but that may work for now until resolved.

    Excel 2016 Force Legacy Workbook Sharing or Ribbon button with Policy?

    Some but not all Excel workbooks appear in taskbar.


    I have for example, five Excel workbooks open, four will appear in the taskbar when I hover over the Excel icon and one will not. This happens pretty much every day and with a wide variety of Excel files, not the same ones. I have not noticed the same issue with other programs but must admit I rarely would have multiple files open from other programs.

    I have tried every option suggested on forums that I have read including unticking and reticking the box in Excel advanced options to 'show all windows in taskbar', also right clicking on the taskbar to 'never combine' (and although this is not really what I'm after, the workbook will not show in the taskbar either). None of these make any difference.

    I have also tried opening the files from the open button, from the recently used files list and from the folder they are stored in but this makes no difference.

    When I 'alt-tab through the open screens, the workbook that I cannot see from the taskbar will always show as the very last item after every other screen from every other program I have open, even when it is the last item I have looked at.

    It's driving me mad as in my work I always have to switch back and forth between spreadsheets.
    Can anyone help or has anyone else come across the same problem?
