I have noticed that the code I use for older versions of Access don't hide the program's background when the first form open in the 2010 version. Could you direct me to the code that will make it so that after clicking on the icon of an Access program that the first form to open does so and you only see that effect?
You can change the startup options. Click on the Microsoft Office button in the top left of the Access window and then click on the Access Options button. Several options allow you to customize the appearance of an Access database (Navigation pane, ribbon, etc).
