Displaying Help Full Screen

P: n/a
Is there some setting in Access so when I get help it will display
full screen and not part screen with my Access window. I've Googled
and checked help but can't find anything.

Thanks

There should be 4 icons at the top of the help screen. The left one will
toggle the help as a separate window or a window connected ("docked") to
Access. The next time you open help, it should remember what its docked
state was when you closed help. To go full screen, maximize the help window.
Even if you have it docked, it will maximize to full screen if you click the
maximize button.

Thanks, Wayne, that got me part of the way. The help window stays
maximised but whenever I flick back to the Access window it is
restored to the size it was with the docked help window. And it seems
to take a couple of clicks of the maximise button to get it maximised.
But as soon as I go back to it it returns to the smaller size. Is
there anything I can do about that?

TIA,
Pat

I'm not getting that on this computer, but I've seen what you mention. If
you minimize the help, it also tends to pop back up as you switch back to
Access from other programs. I don't know of any work-arounds. I also seem to
remember this behavior being different in different versions of Access.
