Hide menu bar in ACCESS 2010

OK, seems simple, but I have a database that when I am indevelopment mode, I want to see all the objects and menus, but when the user opens the database, I want the menus and objects to hide - this is an ACCESS 2010 database.

You could run it as a runtime with the /runtime parameter in a shortcut.

In the development/master copy of the  front end (.accdb or ,.mdb) I leave it unlocked. The end users should never see it. ALl the full ribbon/menus are available.

After compiling the front end .accde/.mde for deployment, I open it up and lock it down. Once the testing has been completed, this locked down version  is deployed to the users.
