Having successfully removed the Quick Access Toolbar and the standard ribbons, I can't find away to get the Form (Table, Anything) Design View.

Any clues?

Check in the Options - Current Database settings http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/access-help/set-user-options-for-current-database-from-a-centralized-location-HA010341609.aspx 
After this you will need to open the database with the Shift key pressed (to allow design changes)

You can also try the keyboard shortcut:
 
  Ctrl+,    (Move from Form View, to Design View)
and/or...
  Ctrl+.    (Move from Design View, to Form View)
;-)

Couldn't get the control keys to work, though.
