    Excel Opening 2 Instances

    I am using Office 365 (Excel 2016).

    I have a shortcut on my taskbar to Excel.

    When I right-click on the shortcut and select a file from the "recent" list, it opens the file, but it also opens a second, blank, instance of Excel, with no workbook, that is just titled "Excel".

    The same happens if I open an Excel file in File Explorer by double-clicking on it.

    However, if I click on the Excel link in my taskbar to open Excel, I am presented with a list of templates (on the right) and a list of "recent" files (on the left). Selecting the file in this way does NOT open a second instance of Excel.

    It happens to me aswell.. I have tried to find a solution, but I still have not managed it yet.

    At first it was irritating, I just ignore it now.
