Make the menu a popup. (Right CLick, with sub menus.) Just create a regular menu with the menus you would want as submenus in it. Then use the following code and change the second word in the 3rd line for the name of your menu.

Private Sub Form_MouseDown (Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
      If Button = 2 Then
            PopupMenu mnuFile
      End If
End Sub

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You have to get rid of the menu on your form... even though your border is set to none, the presence of a menu will cause the menu to be shown (as you've found).

But that doesn't matter: the pop-up menu doesn't need to be in the same form. Here's the procedure:

Your main form is Form1. Create it with no menu and no border.
Create Form2 with a single menu item (named mnuFile, for example) and place the menu items you want in your pop-up menu as submenu items.

In Form1 add the popup menu as follows (a slight mdification of what's shown in the Help Example)

Private Sub Form_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    If Button = 2 Then
        PopupMenu Form2.mnuFile
    End If
End Sub

Notice that instead of "PopupMenu mnuFile" it's "PopupMenu Form2.mnuFile". Now Form1 will have no title bar but will have a popup menu.

If you want your menu items to activate Subs inside Form1 (if they need access to Private data, for example), then make those Subs Public and make your menu items in Form2 do nothing except call those Subs.

One more thing - you must put "Unload Form2" in your Form1_Unload sub, so that the app shuts down properly.

Hope this does what you need, good luck!
