Restore my built-in menu items?

P: n/a
DFS
I inadvertently deleted all the items from the built-in Access97 Window
menu: Tile Horizontally, Tile Vertically, Cascade, etc.

Can I somehow get them back without reinstalling Access97 (or creating them
as my own custom items)?

The quickest way to do this is to right-click on the menu bar and select
"Customize..." from the pop-up menu to bring up the "Customize" dialog
window. Select the "Toolbars" tab and select "Menu Bar" from the list.
Then select the "Reset" button on the right side of the dialog window to
restore the entire built-in menu bar to its original state.

If you don't want to restore any other changes you may have made to the
other menu items in the built-in menu bar, then you may be able to add these
Windows menu items back in individually. (I don't remember if you can do in
Access 97, but I know you can in later versions.) Open the "Customize"
dialog window and select the "Commands" tab and scroll down on the list box
on the left and select the "Windows and Help" item. Then drag the items in
the list box on the right up to the "Windows" menu on the the built-in menu
bar until you have everything back the way that you want.

Thanks. That did it.
