Maximize the Microsoft Access Application Window on Startup
Have you ever wanted Microsoft Access to automatically Maximize itself when it opened? This is especially helpful if you've got large forms that display on startup. In this video I'll show you how to do just that. I'll also show you how to force other databases to Restore to a normal window if the previous database opened Maximized.
Michael (a Gold Member) asks, "I work between a couple of different database files. Whenever I open them they take the shape of the last Access database I had opened. I’ve got a couple with really big Main Menu forms and they get squished. So now I have to close the form and reopen it, or manually adjust the size. Is there a way I can just make Access maximize itself when it opens? I don’t want them ALL maximized, just a few."
I'll show you how to Minimize and Restore both the Ribbon and the Navigation Pane as well.
