Custom Menu Bar similar to Window's Taskbar

P: 5
Is there a way, in Access, to create a custom menu bar that can be used as the default menu bar that will, in essence, function like the Window's Taskbar?

I would like the menu bar to show all currently open forms, and by clicking on one that form would get the focus.

So, when the database is first opened, only the switchboard, or "Main", would be on the tool bar. Opening the various forms that are in the database would cause them to be displayed on the menu bar, and using the Exit button on any of the forms would cause it to disappear from the menu bar, allowing for easy naviagition between open forms.

My goal is to disallow the various forms from displaying as separate objects in the Windows taskbar, but still allow easy navigation.

Thanks in advance!
