My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and i use Access 2013.  I have a small app, and when the Form is opened when the App is loaded, the Form is maximized in that I am unable to hit the X button to close it.  Is there a way to load the Form by code, so that it occupies about 95% of the screen, so that I can  click on the task bars to move it around.  Thank u for your suggestion.

You should be able to use the Forms Move method, which lets you position the form and size it all in one.

Private Sub Form_Open

    me.Move 1440, 1440,  9*1440, 9*1440

End Sub

This should make the form 9"x9" and offset it 1" from the bottom of the ribbon and 1" from the right margin of the navpane

Assumes that you have the forms configured for overlapping windows, not tabs, which is the default in later versions of Access.

Noting that 1440 Twips = one inch, and the parameters for move are in Twips.

Yeah, Joe, there has been a lot of that lately too.  One of these days, I'll find some time to finish the CommandBarTool.
