Are you referring the the Access application window or your forms?

Are you wanting to hide the title bar?

See:

To hide the Access shell see:

FWIW: The Windows standard is to have a minimize/maximize/close for standard forms (non model or pop-up). I have found it best to use them. IMHO, it is much more user friendly.

Want to hide the form name like Switchboard -- the form name on left top of the form and to leave the application main form open want to hide the minimize/maximize/close bar which is right top corner of the form.

please advise the easy way to do that.

Private Sub Form_Load()
Me.Caption = " "        ' space
End Sub

This will hide the caption.

I would recommend that you set the form caption to something meaningful to the user. This helps when trying to identify the application from Windows.

please advise the easy way to do that.
There is not an easy way to hide Access's close button. Did you get a chance to look at first link in my previous post ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/300688 ).
