I have a maxmized popup form.  It takes up the whole screen which is great.  

I was recently asked by my supervisor to have it open just as it is only he wants to see the taskbar on the bottom of the screen.

Is this possible?  Can I keep almost all of the screen covered except for the taskbar?

Thanks,

JOe K.

Try using the MoveSize command

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
   DoCmd.MoveSize 0, 0, 10000, 10000              ' replace with value to 'almost' max
End Sub

On my systems, Maximize does not cover up the task bar.  In fact, no application should.  What is your screen resolution ?

I tried it on 1024X768 and 1440X900.  It covered the taskbar on both of them.
This is a shared program with multiple resolutions.  The lowest resolution (which I designed the form to) is 1024X768.

The form has PopUp and Modal on.  I tried all 4 combinations and the results were either it maximized to the access toolbars or it takes up the whole screen.

Would move size work if there are a bunch of different resolutions?

Even if you just Maximize the Access application window, it does not cover up the windows task bar, and no form is going to go outside the Access app window.  Something else is going on here.

MoveSize will work, but ... you would have to get the screen res - and adjust the Height and Width parms accordingly ...
