Excel Could Not See Network Drives After Windows 10 Upgrade

One of my clients I just upgraded their PC from Windows 7 to 10. They have Office 2010 and everything was working except Excel could not see any network drives. All other apps are fine. I Googled it and came across this article. It did not help but let me search in a location that I would not expect. It described if the program is running as Administrator it might not see the network drives. I have came across this before. Usually in an elevated  CMD Prompt. It also mentioned deleting a registry but would affect all Office. So I checked first for the Administrator. That was not the issue. The issue was for some reason the Excel icon was set to run in Windows XP compatible mode. Removed that and everything is back to normal.
