[read_my_file, rmfdir] = uigetfile('*.xlsx')
if ~ischar(read_my_file); return; end %user cancel
rmfn = fullfile(rmfdir, read_my_file)
read_my_file_table = readtable(rmfn) ;

"How can I select the file from any folder on my computer?"
This is pretty simple. You need to provide the full path of the file while calling uigetfile function.
uigetfile('D:\folder\subfolder\subsubfolder\*.xlsx')
