File Explorer Missing Search

When I open file explorer (Open/Save dialog or insert image dialog) in Excel - it doesn't include search tab, but when similar dialogs are opened in other Office application there is search tab.

Also xlsx files have wrong excel icon - it is showing windows excel component 2010 icon.

Window Search is enabled and ticked.

What could be wrong?

You could try repairing Office. Open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office, Right Click on it & this will open a couple of Repair options.

What version of Office are you using.

You could have a look at this MS website it may be of help to you.

By the way, File Explorer is on Windows 8, renamed from Windows Explorer on Windows 7 and earlier versions.
