  • is there any way if they are minimized , restored? and user force to put some information to them?

  • is there ay way to stick excel files on desktop?

The first is possible, you would need to write a script that runs every x minutes (using windows task scheduler) check to see if excel is open, from there you can maximize the window and/or open the file. This is a non trivial programming task. – Pynner Feb 2 '13 at 16:46
How can you maximize all of these files all the time? Is there only one of them open on each machine? If you have more than one open on a machine, they can't ALL be fully maximized simultaneously – datatoo Feb 3 '13 at 14:56
