Access 2010 Navigation Pane - no Macros and no Modules

I’m going stir crazy trying to adapt to Access 2010.  Things go along ok and, then, a mystery.  I’ve spent far too much time trying to resolve this problem re the Navigation Pane. The Navigation Options (see below) is how I have it set up.

However, when I click on All Access Objects on the pane I do not see either Macros or Modules.  See what the pane looks like below.  Note that Object Type and All Access Objects both have check marks in front of them.  (Note: I couldn’t use the snipping tool to make a copy of the actual pane so I did a lookalike in Word without the check marks.)

I’m guessing that this is a security permissions problem of some kind but I cannot seem to find where the resolution is buried.  I have other 2010 db’s that are ok.  This is a brand new blank accdb….haven’t done a thing to it.  I had a previous accdb with a form in it, but same problem.

 You won't see the group until you create something.

Which ... IS somewhat annoying I must say.

I certainly miss what you see in the screenshots below.

The first db I had this prob with did have a table in it (imported) and a form.  However, I decided to import both a macro and a module from a previous db and that did the job.  Weird!
