You can with some controls change them to another type by right clicking and selecting "Change to"

For example, you can change a text control into a combo.

However you can't do this with all controls and if that's the case, then your only option is to delete the controls and start over.

Also, if you are changing from a text box to a combo or listbox, Access will change the control type but you need to go in and change all the properties to define the columns and RowSource.
