How can you allow a user to edit hyperlink without allowing full menus Access 2007

I don't really want to allow Full Menus in my Access 2007 application but I would like the user to be able to use the edit hyperlinks option. Is this possible? Once I create the accde, having disallowed full menus the only option you get with hyperlinks is 'Add to favourites'
Any help would be gratefully received.

Hi stillers1994,

Create your own Right Click menu or command button that does what you want.

Good Luck!


Hello Gary
Many thanks for your reply
I am now trying to find information on how to set up an Access 2007 Right Click Menu
Struggling a little
Do you have any useful links
In particular getting the edit hyperlink option to appear in the shortcut menu

Apologies if I am being too slow on the uptake with this but I have never played with the menus (other than disabling them on start up) before

Thankyou for your super-fast replies
Firstly I have Access 2007 and not the luxury of 'earlier versions'
Reading this article I can just about grasp the construction of a menu of 'macro' actions but...
 I can't quite see where I build my basic right click options of  Copy, Paste, Print and Hyperlink (including Hyperlink Edit) in the macro as these 'menu items' do not appear as options in the macro actions
where am I going wrong?
