Securing MS Access 2010

In previous versions of Access I could change the startup settings to show only the form I wanted to display.

I opened options and chose the form I want in to display on statup.

When I open the the db the application displays all the table and queries.

How can I display the form only (no objects)? and not allow the user to hold the shift key down?

Turn off the Navigation Pane (see image) and use this tool to disable the Shift Key:

The link below contains an MDB which allows you to 'set' and 'reset' the Shift Key Bypass from a REMOTE mdb.  
It's very cool. Scroll down the page to 'By Pass Shift Key Code'
And it works in A2010 also.
