Restore Excel XLB File

Written by Lucy John on April 17, 2023

“One of my Excel files was not opening. Each attempt of mine to view the file is failing. I thought there might be something wrong with location of .xlb file which is the setting file of excel sheet. So, I wanted to relocate .xlb file. I had copied XLB file and deleted it from that location. Then I tried to paste it on a different location but it is displaying a message, “Could not find this item”. I feel so stupid for deleting XLB file before pasting it on new location. Is there any way to get back deleted XLB file on my computer?”
