Open the form that will hold the button in Design View.
Choose View, Toolbox to make the Toolbox available if it is not active.
Make sure the Control Wizards button on the Toolbox is activated.

Click once on the Command Button in the Toolbox.
Click somewhere on the form that will hold the button.
This will launch the Command Button Wizard.
From the Categories Pane, choose Form Operations.
From the Actions Pane, choose Open Form and click Next.

The Command Button Wizard will display all of your forms.

Click the About Form and click Next.
Choose to put Text on the button.
Edit the default Open Form text so it reads About.
Click Next.

Name the button cmdAboutButton.
Click Finish.

Once you have done this you will probably need a Return Button on other
forms to get back to your main form.

Follow the steps above and choose the form you want to return to, label
the button Return, and name it something like cmdReturnButton.
