    New context menu - missing new excel worksheet?


    Hi, after upgrading to new version of office (from 2013 to 2016) i have no new excel worksheet in new(folder) of context menu. Could please somebody help me out on this?

    I followed Shaun s tutorial for removing and reinstating New context menu https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/8012-new-context-menu-add-remove-windows-10-a.html

    I have also noticed that some programs report that i have more items in the new context menu than i really have! Is this normal?
    Here are the pictures to prove that:

    New context menu - missing new excel worksheet?

    Hello Sol, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Yeah, that tutorial will only restore the default New context menu items.

    The .reg file below should restore the Microsoft Excel Worksheet New context menu item for Office 2016.

    Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xlsx\Excel.Sheet.12\ShellNew] "FileName"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\\Root\\VFS\\Windows\\ShellNew\\excel12.xlsx"[/quote]

    OK i ved it! Using right click enhancer program i noticed that the .xlsx key was missing! (but in the regedit he was still present!) i deleted the .xlsx key from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and than repaired office installation. Everything works fine now*Smile

    Shaun thanks for the time and inspiration, regards !

    Sol,
    To confirm, I had exactly the same problem and your solution worked for me as well.

    • delete .xlsx registry key completely (after backing it up by exporting)
    • Repair Office 2016 from the "Uninstall or change a program"

    Thanks because that has been annoying me for a while now.
