Can you somehow remove the toolbar you want from an options area and then re add it?  It may go back to default size when you re add it back to the layout of the program.

Hello angelmtaylor,

If the above does not work, go to Help on top menu and select Detect and Repair

Hope this helps!

That is standard, using the default tabbed view in A2K7, and cannot be changed if you want to use A2K7's Tabbed view.


You can, however set the view to "Overlapping Windows", which has more of an A2K3 feel to it:

- Click the Office "Blob" in the upper Left-hand corner of the database window
- Click on "Access Options"
- Click "Current Database"
- In Application Options, under Document Window Options, select Overlapping Windows.

You will have to restart your database for this to take effect.

dj_ludachris: tried that first. Removing, close/reopen the app, add the nav back, close/reopen = same result

war1: ran diagnostic...that only checked for problems on my machine and not the database itself

mbizup: I changed the overlapping view. Same result. Window overlap but the nav pane stays the same

Long shot but what about trying to type something in that search bar, then clicking the magnifying glass?

Typing something and using the magnifying glass didn't work but it prompted me to remove the search bar completely and it then I had the option to resize. Thanks dj ludachris and everyone else for the effort!!
