    Default Excel hyperlinks to dwg restores down AutoCAD window

    Is there a way to leave AutoCAD maximized when opening drawings with Excel hyperlinks?

    This is getting to be a bit nerve wracking.

    I'm not sure I understand whats going on.
    If you would like to help my 2 year old niece Alaina in her battle against Leukemia you can donate blood at any Carter Blood Care and put SPON050875 on the donor form. Thank you so much for any contributions in this matter that you can make.

    thats odd, I've never ran 11 but have not seen this in any version I have run (jumped from 2007 to 2012) , could it be a windows setting? or even an excel setting?

    I searched everywhere I could think of. Question has been asked a lot, but no answers.

    Through trial and error I discovered that if Excel is maximized when you click the link AutoCAD will be maximized, but if Excel is not maximized when link is clicked AutoCAD is not maximized.

    Also noticed that if I minimize AutoCAD to the taskbar it does not maximize when I restore it. I believe this could be a Windows 7 thing. I am still searching.

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm gonna go ahead and blame windows 7 lol, my IT guys had no idea what could cause this but after reading your last post I tried to dublicate what you did since I always keep my programs maximized but I didnt have any problems, I'm still on xp.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I never recalled this in XP either. I use Excel 2003 and Excel 2007, this happens in both.
