    Registry keys for Excel file associations

    I have this problem where Excel 2016 keeps taking over my file associations from 2010.
    I want to create a .reg file so I can force the Excel file associations back to Excel 2010.
    To do this, I need to know which section of the registry to alter.

    Anyone?

    (Not interested in the following 'alternative' solutions:
    1. opening files by opening the program then selecting File Open
    2. setting the default program by "right click, Open With". Does not work for me (2010 does not appear. If I folder drill down to the Exe, it doesn't appear on the program list so I can never set it as the default program)

    Hi and welcome
    although we value privacy as much as anyone else, it could be important that members have a rough idea of your location. You might in the future post questions which are bound to your regional settings.
    So, please update your profile to something more precise then "In the Doldrums" ( country will suffice, no need to be more precise).
    Thank you for helping us to help you

    Are you implying that Excels registry keys are region-specific?
