Dialog form cause other open forms to resize

I've had this trouble for a while.    I've tried various combinations of POPUP, MODAL, BORDER SIZE with no luck in fixing the problem.

From a FORM that servers as a menu, a command button is clicked and a report opens in PREVIEW.    
When the report is closed, a small POPUP form opens asking if the report printed OK, and if YES it runs a query that marks things PAID, then closes the popup form.

The problem is that when this dialog form is closed..... the original menu goes from MAXIMIZED to resized (about 2/3 of the screen)
 
I have the OnCurrent, OnGotFocus, etc... set to maximize the form but the user has to click on the form to get it to take that action.

Am I missing something simple, or should I just build in a routine that selects the menu form and maximizes it when the report is closed?

Thanks
