Why can I suddenly not edit a file?

Hello people, my first time doing this.  Something isn't working as it usually does. 

I go to my file list and edit a file, this usually then brings up the document and on the top right side the edit icon scrolls around and then I can edit and save.  Except for the past week the edit icon keeps scrolling around and it doesn't open in excel.  I have tried a number of times with different documents and it's the same.  Has this happened to you?  What do I do?

Thank you very muchly!
