Hi amaimedia,

Check out http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=245746
How to Disable the Close Button (X) on the Access Application Window
I don't think you'd want to disable the task manager.


Good Luck!

there is a long winded way - requires code to be added to your forms

this captures alt-f4

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)

    Dim altDownHit As Boolean
   
    altDownHit = (Shift + vbAltMask) > 0
   
    If KeyCode = vbKeyF4 And altDownHit Then
        MsgBox "Sorry , but Alt+F4 has been disabled"
        KeyCode = Empty
        Shift = Empty
    End If

End Sub



if you make your form modal, then it will always stay on top (within MSAccess).
Not sure if you go into tools/options and allow windows in taskbar, makes it modal for all windows.

to disable task mgr, there are registry hacks (can code in vba) you can do but what I saw ages ago was security per user not globally.

Very True.

If you disabled the TaskManager in Access and your Application Locked/Crashed, how would you close Access?
Pull the power cord?!?!
:O

bsharath,

Does your solution "Disable TaskManager" solution provide for turning the Taskmanager back on, when Access is closed?
:O

This might be a bit heavy-handed, for a “Beginner”
(Registry editing, Group Policy, User Configurations, Administrative Templates.)
:O

Also, your link to disable Keystrokes appears to be GLOBAL, meaning Alt-F4 will be disabled for ALL applications, not just Access.
So again, can it be toggled on and off with the Access app?

Remember: amaimedia, is a "Beginner on this subject", not a SysAdmin.

bsharath,


You posted two solutions.
One to disable the Task bar.
My first question was:
Will your solution turn the task managaer back ON when the database closes?
Yes or no?



My second question was that your second Solution, to disable Alt-F4, seemed to be GLOBAL.
From the original question, it does not seem like they wanted a global solution, rather they just wanted a database related solution.
So my second question is:
Can your Disable Alt-F4 solution be made to be database specific and NOT global?
Yes or no?

Thanks

None of my solutions are for Databases...
They are for windows (Disabling Alt +F4) on the desktop...

Maybe I wasn't clear but the Solution "How to Disable the Close Button (X) on the Access Application Window" disables Alt-F4
