    Unanswered: Hide MS Access 2010 Background

    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?

    Thanks!

    The trick I use is to force Access into runtime mode.

    With Access 2007/2010 this is very easy. Just rename your front end .accde to .accdr.

    Hide Access Background

    This didn't work. Do you have another trick?

    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).
    Have a nice day!

    What did not work?

    Maybe it would help if you would explain in more detail what you what you mean by "hide the program's background"?

    Hide Access

    By hiding the program's background I mean that when the first form opens you don't see the Access menu and so forth - only the form.

    In the Access options you can turn off/disable features.
