Hi there, I have an access Database in Access 2003.

When ever a form (or any object for that matter) is opened, it has it's own icon on the task bar.

Once I have a number of forms open, the task bar is full.

I only want to see one icon for the whole database, how do I do this???

    Accepted Solution

    If you go to the menu option Tools then select Options

    Ensure you go to the "View" tab then uncheck "Windows in Taskbar"

    This then leaves just one item in the taskbar for your database
