Win10 - start menu - settings - apps - default apps - set defaults by app - excel - manage - click (at least) .xslx - both versions of excel should be listed - pick the latest one.

You could also navigate to a folder with an excel file - right click on it - choose open with - choose another app - click always use this app and then click excel 2021.

I don't use excel much but since I installed that $50 copy of Office 2021, when I double click an excel file, it opens excel (2010, the default)  but doesn't load the file. So I have to go to File and open it there.  Since mostly I opening excel files that I use from time to time - time sheets, journals, mail lists, etc -  they're on the recently used list so I don't have to navigate to file with the open file dialog box.

But it's an annoyance and if there's a workaround I sure would appreciate it.
