tools/options is ok but when people unslect that option to use another database, mine will then revert back to showing again once reopened

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.

So use the code/macro alternative.
You can use an autoexec macro if you don't want to use code.

The easiest way is to put this behind the first form that you open.

Private Sub Form_Load()

  Application.SetOption "ShowWindowsInTaskbar", False
 
End Sub
