If it is still opening opening Execl 2010 when you have installed 2021, there was a problem 
with the installation.

Check that
has a Default value
has a Default value of 
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE" "%1"

(Open RegEdit as Admsinistrator)

Sounds like it is is pointing to an earlier installation and is missing the "%1"
