    The link to this Fix It is apparently broken.

    Doesn't link anywhere good job…

    The link used to work, but has stopped working as of mid-March. The KB article has also strangly disappeared. I suspect a windows update that came through in mid-March caused this fix to no longer work. This is quite frustrating, as I really enjoyed this feature before it stopped working.

    i want the pop up back Save or Open for CSV and XLS files, where is that switch?

    I think Microsoft removed this utility because it broke the Excel-specific Paste Special behavior between workbooks.
