Add “Export to Microsoft Excel” to Internet Explorer Context Menu

The Export to Microsoft Excel context menu option in Internet Explorer helps you export tabular data in a Web page to Microsoft Excel. If for some reason the Export to Microsoft Excel option is not added after installing Microsoft Office, you can add it back manually.

Add “Export to Microsoft Excel” command to the Context menu

Launch Regedit.exe and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt

Create a subkey and name it as Export to Microsoft Excel

Double-click (default) and set its Value data as follows:

For Excel 2003

res://C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\EXCEL.EXE/3000

For Excel 2007

res://C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12\EXCEL.EXE/3000

For Excel 2010

res://C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\EXCEL.EXE/3000

For Excel 2016

res://C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\OFFICE16\\EXCEL.EXE/3000

For Excel 2016 – Office 365

res://C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\root\\OFFICE16\\EXCEL.EXE/3000

Note: If using 32-bit Office on a 64-bit computer, the path would be C:\Program Files (x86) instead of C:\Program Files.

Hint: You can check the path to excel.exe by right-clicking the Excel shortcut in the Start menu and clicking Properties.

Exit the Registry Editor.

REG Files

To automate the above setting, download and save it to desktop. Unzip and run the appropriate registry file for the version of Microsoft Excel installed. To remove the option, run the file undo.reg.


This imports the table into Excel.
