set the Pop Up property of the form to yes

place this in the load  event of the form

private sub form_load()
docmd.maximize

end sub

OK..

I am seeing the code.. only few forms have the above.. others have it in  Form_Activate() Form_Open Form_Close()

would form open and load be the same..?

The events are "roughly" the same, the code will work on either.

Technically the Open Event will trigger first, and can be canceled.
However, this is not always what you want, so On Load is sometimes a better option.

On Activate is used when the form is clicked on to give it the focus.
This event is used sometimes because there is code elsewhere to Restore another form (this will restore all open forms)
So if If Maximize is not on your main form's Activate event, it will remain restored.
Make sense?

You can see the VBA help files on each event for more in-depth info on each event, to better decide which might be best for your particular situation.

Also note that if you are using Access 2007 or newer, you can set the "Document Window Option" to "Tabbed Documents'.
This will make each object appear on a tab.
When any object gets the focus, it will "Fill" the screen.
Many developers like this option  because they don't have to worry about the users becoming to overwhelmed by seeing to many open windows floating around..., and no code is required

If by 'full screen' you mean no evidence of the main Access window, I do not believe there is such a mode.  For example if you open a doc file in Word and click View, Full Screen, the document fills the screen except for a small popup that allows you to Close Full Screen.  I do not consider Maximize and Full Screen to be the same.

Ray,

Last JimD and I investigated this, it still worked (in Acc 07, win XP at least...)

http://access.mvps.org/access/api/api0019.htm

But you are correct, this could be what the asker is looking for....

boag2000, thanks but i cant use "Tabbed Documents' because this is access 2002.

Ray, it is Maximize .. want all screen to be in max mode.. there is no central command for all forms as a default, is there?

capricorn's post is as close as you will probably get.

So Yes, it can be done, you just have to put that command on each form.

There may be a way to loop through the form's collection and maximize each form though...
But it might be more trouble than it's worth, and open up a bigger can or worms...
