I believe that it must be possible to reinstate Allow full menu after you've tick it of through tool>Startup.

Can someone please tell me how to do this.

Alternatively you can show all menus with this code:
Sub showall()
 
Dim i As Integer
 
For i = 1 To CommandBars.Count
 
    CommandBars(i).Enabled = True
    
Next i
 
End Sub

Open in new window

Capricorn: You're solution definitely works. I am going to awared you the points. However, I need some clarification from therealmongooose to see if the points should be shared.

Theremongoose how is the code triggered. I don't want the full menu to be available everytime the db opens, just when the db developer is opening it for maintenance

So I take it that the purpose of this code is to prevent the disabling of the full menu. And that it cannot be used to reinstate the full menu if it is already diabled.

As I said capricorn I just need a little clafication on when and how to use this code. However, the shift option seems so straight forward I can hardly see why I'd need the code.

I am guessing that it maybe useful  if another code could be used to stop the shift option from working. Then the showall code can be linked to an event such as a logon form so that gives the option of opening the database as user, administrator or developer.
