How to hide Excel on start

 

“Hide Excel on start” was designed to improve the visual experience in the end-user interface. It is a special feature that allows the user to make the entire Excel invisible on start. For this feature you will need to create your own interface in VBA Forms (this interface should be created in VBA code), which will substitute the Excel’s interface.
