Controlling the Screen Area that MS Access displays on

I have two applications running at once - one of these is OUTLOOK.  How can I fix the area that Outlook displays in so that it doesn't jump outside?

Ie I can minimize Outlook itself but when I do something like an advanced find on a mailbox the result shoots out of the minimized box or overlaps it?

I have an spreadsheet that users enter data onto and I need Outlook open as a reference tool.

I think the various dialog boxes "remember" where they were previously placed on the screen, so once you place them once, they should stay there.

(I've had fun with this when changing to a lower screen resolution, dislog boxes seemed to vanish but were actually being 'displayed' offscreen !)

Hi - Any way to set and unset these properties programatically?

I'd like to be able to set it up so that I can run some code to set the property and soem other code to unset?
