Resize Forms for Different Screen Sizes & Resolutions

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'm going to teach you how to use Anchoring to allow you to resize the controls on your form to fit different screen sizes. This way you can see more information on larger screens, but still design your forms to fit on smaller ones like cell phones. As a bonus feature, I'll teach you how to automatically maximize forms when they open to take full advantage of your screen space.

Brennan from Cork, Ireland (a Platinum Member) asks: I have three different devices that I use my database on. I have my normal desktop PC in my office. I have a travel laptop that's got a much smaller screen. I also like to log on remotely using Remote Desktop software to check things from my cell phone. I've built three different sets of forms for each of these devices, but it's a pain having to update them. Every time I make a change to one, I've got to change all three. Isn't there any way you can stretch or resize forms to fit the available screen space?

Members

Members will learn how to build buttons to allow a user to actually zoom in and out of an Access form and resize the controls and font sizes. This is functionality that is in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint and should be in Access, but it's not. However, we can add it with a little bit of VBA coding.
