    Excel Automatically Starts Upon Login After Using


    I rarely use Excel. However, our resident schedule is published in spreadsheet format. If I open it with Excel and later close/exit the Excel app, Excel will automatically start when I restart my computer or shut down/start again.

    I'm not sure if there is some remnant of the program that is hanging around. Has anyone experienced this?

    Next time you close an Excel file you could open Task Manager and see if Excel is still running. Sometimes when I open an Excel file an empty Excel file opens behind the active window and when I close the file the second Excel window remains on the desktop.

    This was a bug with word in the MS Fall update. First I've heard of XL exhibiting the same auto open on log IN
    What version of Windows are you running. @SoFine409 gives good advice to stop the behavior. You could also check Task Manager > Start Up tab and see if there's an entry for XL to automatically open on Start.

    I checked the task manager and didn't find any occurrence of Excel.

    I'm running 1803 (build 17134.228).

    How can I report this to Microsoft? Is there an Office specific bug reporting site, or should I use the feedback hub app?

    My problem is not Office related, but there is certain similarity between yours and mine.
    My issue is that each time when I restart my computer either from Sleep or from Shut Down, the last program that is opened before will open automatically.
    I have resigned to live with it, but it is annoying.
    I apologize if my post is irrelevant.
