SAP GUI Configurations - Visual Design > Applications Not Appearing


I'm encountering a problem in SAP GUI Configuration.

I am trying to add excel in SAP GUI Config. and I followed the steps below.

Go to SAP GUI Config. > Visual Design > Applications > Add EXCEL.EXE

The screenshot below (left) is the guide I'm following and (right) is the actual that I'm trying to input,

Expectation is, if I click the "add" button below, a file name should appear.

But the problem is that whenever I click the add button, nothing happens and no app is appearing.

Would like to seek for your help on this please. Hoping I would get an answer for this. Thanks in advance!

Best Regards,

Bea C.

    Hello Bea,

    welcome in the SAP Community.

    It is possible to set the application page as read only. Check the following registry value [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SAP\General\Applications] or [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SAP\General\Applications] (on 32-Bit OS)
    if the entry AppsSapGuiVisualTheme_ReadOnly exists.

    Best regards
