Getting a MS Access Form to Open at the top of the form

I have several forms in my program that are actually little help files or "tips".  The user clicks on one of these from the main page.  Some of these informational forms (which have no input options) are a little long, so some scrolling is required to read the entire page.

But when the "go to form this or that" button is pressed, the "form" opens at the bottom.  Not very convenient.

Is there a simple way to get the form to open at the top?

If not, what other ways are there?

Make sure you set the tab order (View Menu, Tab Order) so that the first control is the one at the top of the screen, The AutoOrder may help on this.
Cheers, Andrew

Pointed me in the right direction.  I didn't want or need a "control" at the top of the form.  Ended up placing an extra "close form" button there just to get the form to open to the top of the page.

Thanks for your help!
