Application.FollowHyperlink question

P: n/a
I'm using the following code in Access 2000 to open a new MS Internet
Explorer window with whatever URL value I pass to myURL:
Application.FollowHyperlink myURL, , True
(the True opens MS Internet Explorer in a new window)
The problem is, when a user clicks the Back button in MS Internet
Explorer, the Access Window comes back to whatever size and position
the user shaped and placed the MS Internet Explorer window. This is
worse because I have this application using all popup forms and the
Access Window barely visible on the screen when the application loads.
Is there a way to make the Access application go back to a specified
location and size after the user clicks the Back button in MS Internet
Explorer, or short of that, is there a way to disable the Back button
in MS Internet Explorer.
Any help is appreciated.

I don't know if this will help. In the Access form's OnActiveate event
enter
Docmd.Restore
