Recognize file type for XLSB format

I switched some Excel workbooks from XLSX/XLSM formats to the newer XLSB (Excel Binary) format because this makes for a smaller and faster file. Sharing this with a client, however, they were confused because there were no Excel files in the folder. Of course, the files were there, but the icon ends up being the "?" icon instead of the "XLS" icon. Please make these look like an Excel file.

Maciej,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention; I've forwarded it to the User Interface product manager.

Yes! Please add support for this type of Excel file...it's all we use internally...smaller and faster.

Thanks

Hi Romain,

Thanks for suggestion. I shared this with our product management team, and we will investigate supporting this file type further.
