In the Access Menu: Tools->Startup, I messed around a bit and now my Tools menu is gone.  I basically unchecked about everything in Startup and have very limited options now when I open this database in Access.

Try this:

Right click over a blank area of the menu.
Click Customize then the Toolbars Tab.
Make sure your toolbar(s) is checked in the list
Also try Reset ...

Close the MDB.
Reopen - but hold down the Shift key until the mdb is completely open.
The see if you can right click and get a menu.

You can also get to the tools menu for the Access menu View>>Toolbars>>Customize

I'm having the same problem but the VIEW menu is not available.  Right clicking in the menu area is not helpful, nor is holding the Shift key upon opening.  All I have for menu choice is File, Edit, Insert, Records, Window & Help.

I hate to have to recreate this database so I can get to the menu.  Are there global menu settings available?
