I have a Windows 8.1 box running Microsoft Office 2010. The Microsoft Access property sheet will not display. It appears it may have something to do with using multiple monitors (I'm using 2).

Probably hidden somewhere.

Do this:

0. Open a form and bring up the property sheet.
1. Key Alt/Spacebar
2. Hit "M"
3. Now use the up and left cursor keys until it appears
4. Hit return.

Actually, now that I say that, let me actually try it here first.   That works for normal windows, not sure about the property sheet.

OK, old method doesn't work.   here's what you need to do:

1. Open the DB and open a form in design view (doesn't matter which).
2. Key Alt/F11 (brings up the VBA window)
3. Key Ctrl/G (brings up the immediate or debug window)

4. Type each of these commands (or cut and paste) one at a time and key return at the end of each:

CommandBars("Property Sheet").Enabled = True
CommandBars("Property Sheet").Top = 0
CommandBars("Property Sheet").Left = 0

  You should now find the property sheet in the upper left corner.

 You can also do this basically through a registry edit, but this is probably the simplest.

one last step; if it's still not visible after doing the commands, key Alt/Enter or click on property sheet on the ribbon.
