Now to your question:
Place the following code on ThisWorkbook Module.
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim lr As Long, lc As Long
Dim shp As Shape

Set ws = Sheets("Sheet1")

lr = ws.Cells.Find("*", SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row
lc = ws.Cells.Find("*", SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Column

For Each shp In ws.Shapes
    If shp.BottomRightCell.Row > lr Then
        lr = shp.BottomRightCell.Row
    End If
    If shp.BottomRightCell.Column > lc Then
        lc = shp.BottomRightCell.Column
    End If
Next shp
lr = lr + 1
lc = lc + 1

ws.Range(ws.Cells(lr, 1), ws.Cells(lr, 1).End(xlDown)).EntireRow.Hidden = True
ws.Range(ws.Cells(1, lc), ws.Cells(1, lc).End(xlToRight)).EntireColumn.Hidden = True
End Sub
