Opening Your Workbooks for Editing
If you’ve just launched Excel 2013 and don’t yet have any workbooks open,
you can open the workbook for editing by selecting it on the list of files under
the Recent heading displayed in the left pane of the Start screen. If the file
you want to edit is not in this list, click the Open Other Workbooks link at the
bottom of this left pane to have Excel take you to the Open screen.
Opening files in the Open screen
When the Open screen is first displayed in the Excel 2013 Backstage (shown
in Figure 4-1) the Recent Workbooks option in the Places pane on the left is
selected. If the file you want to open isn’t shown in this list in the right-hand
pane, you need to select one of the other Places options:

cloud in one of your folders on your Windows Live SkyDrive (for more

drive), Desktop (the Windows 7 or 8 Desktop), and Browse button that
enables to locate workbook files in their respective folder in the Open

Add a Place to designate add access to a SharePoint site or your
SkyDrive account. When you select this option, the right-hand pane
contains an Office365 SharePoint and SkyDrive button. Click the Office365
SharePoint button to log into a SharePoint site for which you have a
user ID and password to add its folders to the Open screen under the
Computer option. Select the SkyDrive option to log into your Windows
