Could you use Excel 2007 VBA code ?  for example,  following code using FileDateTime function,

Range("a1") = FileDateTime("d:\file1.csv")
Range("a2") = FileDateTime("d:\file2.csv")
If  Range('a1") =Range("a2") Then
Range('a3") ="True"
Else
Range("a3")="False"
End If

Hope understand your question completely, if not, please pt it out

You do not need VBA to do this. Simply go to

Alternatively,

Restore the file window (Not the excel window) by clicking on the square button next to the X button (for close file) and then resize the windows as desired.

Excel isn't the best program for this, I prefer the compare option Notepad++ (Freeware)
