Hi All,

Does anyone know if there is a way to get the database window back after locking it out on the 'Startup' screen?

I unchecked the "Use Access Special Keys" option and couldn't get it back. Luckily I had made a copy so no harm done, but I would like to restrict this function in the database for when I roll it out... BUT I do want to be able to get it back without too much of a problem.


I have decided to not use the built in security, so I need another method. Is there a VBA option that I could use to show the window?

Many thanks.

Try holding down the shift key and the enter key simoultaneously to open the data base.

Re: F11 Secure Window

Apologies as this should not have been ALT+F11, but rather F11 only.

Thanks Alan, but I cant get this to work.

On the "Startup" dialog box, I have deselected the following boxes:
"Display Database Window"
"Use Access Special Keys"

But when I go to "Window" at the top, I can unhide the database window.

I have also tried deselecting the following, (as well as the two at the top):
"Allow Full Menus"
"Allow Default Shortcut Menus"
"Allow Built-in Toolbars"
"Allow Toolbar/Menu Changes"

But when I do this, exit the database and then open it again, no matter what I do, I cannot get the database window open again. :(
