Open in Excel
xltx, xltm, xlt, xlsx, xlsm, xlsb, xls, xll, xlam, xla.

Open on Desktop
Non-MS Office files, such as Open Document text files (odp, ods, odt, and more) or archive files (zip, rar, war, and more).
As an administrator, you can easily configure the file types associated with the application named as in "Open in Word", and set a new label via
See Configuration overview if you have not created this file.
Replace $CATEGORY with any text as you want, but it should represent the application in correspondence to the file types defined in $SET_OF_FILETYPES.
Replace $LABEL with the application label that will be displayed in the UI, for example "Word" or "MS Word".
Here are some examples:
Changing the default labels from "Open in Word", "Open in Excel", and "Open in Powerpoint" into "Open in MS Word", "Open in MS Excel" and "Open in MS Powerpoint":
