Can not see Access 2016 objects when Access is opened without holding shift key

I'm loading an Access 2K mdb file into Access 2016 and the tables, forms, and other objects are not visible, and the controls on the user interface are minimal.  

If I hold the shift key down while opening, everything seems normal.

Is there a way to all me to see the objects without holding down the shift key?

Do you mean the Navigation Pane? If so, then you probably have the "Dispaly Navigation Pane" unchecked in Access Options - Current Database. Holding down the Shift Key when opening bypasses that settings (and a few others).

Awesome!
Love the easy fixes!
I am finally converting my Access2K program to Access2016 so I'm sure I'll have other dumb questions too.
Thanks as always!
