I have developped a stock shares excel workbook that automatically updates through out the day by downloading the new rates, etc...

I would like to keep it on one of my secondary monitors in full screen, so I can keep and eye on it easily without needing to switch to it.

The problem is that whenever I press Win+D to minimize the other applications I have on my primary monitor, my share Excel workbook gets minimized as well, which is of course the correct behaviour.

What I am after is may be a free/shareware that is able to block some windows from getting minimized?

A google search didn't help really much. Is it possible?

Thanks.

Use Always On Top Maker. It's freeware and only 6 KB. The instructions are explained in the link I gave.

Thanks, but it seems to just allow to set it on top, not prevent it from being minimized, right? –  Kharlos Dominguez Apr 15 '11 at 12:20
    
@Kharlos Dominguez: That's right. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Apr 15 '11 at 13:23

You could try DeskPins. Its free. I have used it for a while now and had no problems with it.

You are right - I just tested it. Sorry. –  Mick Apr 16 '11 at 6:45
