Hi Finance teacher

Put this code in the thisworkbook module:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.WindowState = xlMinimized
End Sub


Hope it is what you are looking

I want the EXCEL files to always be Maximized, not minimized (without making users open Excel program first)

What other solution do you have ?

Then I'm not sure if I understood your question...
If you want the files to open Maximized the use:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.WindowState = xlMaximized
End Sub

But I don't think it is what you are looking for...

On the shortcut to open the excel program itself

Right click and select Properties.
About halfway down the dialogue box look for 'Run'.
From the drop down choose 'Maximised' and then click 'Apply'.
