Hide Min/Max button in Access 2003 forms

I'm working on an Access 2003 database.  In the Form_Load of my forms i have a DoCmd.Maximize command.  I want the forms to maximize and not have any control box or min/max buttons.  The format settings are as follows:
Auto Resize - No
Auto Center - No
Control Box - No
Min Max Buttons - No
Close Button - No

In spite of these settings I still get a Min/Max button in the Access menu bar.  

How can i get rid of this?  There is also a Help field that is superfluous which says 'Type a question for help'.  If I could get rid of this it would be helpful as well.

Hi irglebleeben,

Maybe there's Code or a Macro that's changing the settings?

Good Luck!

Remove the question box like this;

Application.CommandBars.DisableAskAQuestionDropdown = True

This is an app-wide setting (i.e. this will cause the box to not show up in ANY Access app on that machine), so you may need to store that value when opening your app, then reset it when closed.

Not sure about the Min/Max buttons; perhaps these links may help:

irglebleeben,

You can try this:

Border Style: Dialog
AutoCenter: Yes
ScrollBars: Nither
RecordSelector: No
And waaaaaaay down at the bottom of the Properties box…
Moveable: No

Now you have to adjust the form *Grid* dimension to just barely fit the screen.
Approximately 10.25in x 5.75in, for a screen resolution of 1024 x 768
(This allows for two toolbars on top)

On the Open and Activate events put:
    Docmd.Restore

What all this will do is *Restore* the form, (meaning not maximized or minimized.)

Since you resized the Form grid, the form will *almost* fit the screen. (Maximize tends to always show the Min/Max buttons)

Since you set Movable to NO, users can’t move the form around.
Hope this helps as well
