Open Access Maximized

P: n/a
tod
Mine is just a pet peeve. But ohhhh what a peeve it is.

Any time I open Access, it opens to half a window. I have to maximize
the application window, then also have to maximize the database
window. Is there a registry setting or other trick that will have
everything open maximized?

IIRC it opens in the same state it was closed using the x in the top
right, DoCmd.Quit, et al don't set this.

Also the window state can be set in the shortcut that starts it,
whether Access will respond to this will remain an excercise for the
reader (IOW I can't be bothered to test ATM).

As for database window, create an AutoExec Macro, put "Maximize"
command in it.

Tod,
All you have to do is create a Macro that has the maximize function in
it and name it AutoExec. This macro will then run anytime Access is
open.
