ms access 2007 database shortcut how to disable the "Getting Started" screen and open the database

When I click on a shortcut to open an ms 2007 database application, the "Getting Started" screen opens. I want to click on the shortcut and have the database application open directly.

In My Computer or Windows Explorer, right-drag your Access database file and use Create Shortcut.  Copy this shortcut to the location you desire.   When you double-click the shortcut, the program Access opens your database.

Unfortunately, the shortcut I made gives the same results. The access database is on a MS Terminal Server using MS Access 2007. My user opens the database without seeing the "Getting Started" screen, but when I had another user log on to the Terminal Server using the same shortcut, he gets the "Getting Started' screen. This problem did not exist when I was using MS Access 2003.

You need to offer more environment detail.   Terminal Services user setting are very different from a standard workstation.  I defer my answer.

The issue was I had copied over the individual user profiles (sessions?) from a Terminal Server which had Office 2003 on it. That apparently does not work when you are upgrading to Office 2007. I also had another problem with a "Security Warning"  message when users would open MS Access databases on the new (Office 2007) Terminal Server. The solution to this was to insert a line in the Registry to ass a Trusted Location for the database. We used Group Policy to accomplish that.
