How to check who has opened and viewed your excel file last time?

If you have a question like who would had viewed and checked your excel file last time to see its content saved by you and it was when you left your system without password or except Admin access etc.

These are some of the problems around. There is solution as well. Yes.

It happens sometime, there is track for everything not only in desktop or laptop but even in a smartphone as well. You can track and check them easily without much effort but you just need to know how to check it? The steps or tips etc.

Solution: To know this who viewed or opened your excel file, you just need to be on desktop or laptop main screen, bring your cursor (mouse) on the excel file, a small pop window or box will let you know the detail. You have to wait for few second to pop it up, or a light click on the file bring that pop-up.


I have given below screen-shot for the same.



The pop up window will show the detail as below;

File Name:
Type: Excel file or Word etc.
Authors Name: XYZ
File size:
Date Modified:


If you found that they modified date is the exact date that you left the system then have no issue. You can be cautious in case if the timing or date is different than when you left it.

Tips: It is always better to set password and let your known (trusted) one only knows it, if it is personal one. The central system in office or somewhere can't do it anything since it might have an Admin access to check it.
