Hi--I am downloading a text file from a website and want to open it in microsoft excel (using windows 8 with Office 2013) rather than the default notepad. However, excel is not even an option in the list of available programs to associate this file type with, and there doesn't seem to be a standalone microsoft excel application available thru the browse feature. Any suggestions? Thanks much...
