    On MBP running Sierra my icons on excel (2011) files has changed to a program icon I used in the 1990's . I believe it was called Zen of Mac. Looks like a little "Jack in the box". See screen shot.

    Any ideas on how to restore Excel icons?

    Looks like an old ResEdit file.

    See if this works: select an Excel file in the Finder, Get Info (command-I), go down to the "Open with" popup and select the Microsoft Excel application, and then click the "Change All..." button.

    That was first thing I tried. I had forgot app name "ResEdit" . that was it. I used it in system 6 and 7 in the 90's. That was ages ago

    I will reset Launch Services. That should do it

    Thanks Brian
