Hello, @Tinkerbell,
I think there are two easy ways of solving your problem.
A - If you already have a Windows Explorer open, you can use the Send hotkey activity to press F4, which will select the address bar, and then Type Into with the file path (make sure to select Empty field in properties)
B - If you just have the path, you can type it into the Run window (Win + R). The file path will automatically open the Excel application with the file.
