How do I quickly enter design mode for a form in Access 2010?
Posted on 2013-02-06
In Access 2003, when I wanted to enter design view for a form, I just had to click on the forms name in the database window and then click the Design button. But I can't find a similar quick method in Access 2010.
When I have no forms open and I click on a form name in the sidebar, the Views button in the toolbar remains grayed-out, so I can't use the Views button to switch to design view (not that I really want to because that would open a drop-down list where I'd have to select Design View, which is an extra step).
Also, I added Design View to the quick access toolbar, but it remains grayed-out there, too.
So I have to right-click on the form name in the sidebar and then select Design View. This isn't the end of the world. But is there a quicker way?
