Disable Office and Minimize buttons in an Access Form

P: 2
I am using an Access program in an secure area and don't want anyone to mess with the screen. For a amateur user how can I do this? I don't find anything in "Options" other than disabling tabs, navigation and full menus. Thanks.

And be aware that because of the nature of Access, whatever you do can be undone by the user.

As a further requirement, I have a form that has a lookup table for users to locate their name. It is an unsecured computer that I want people to use but not be able to do anything but use the lookup table. I do not write any code but have designed what I have from the menus within Access, which I have used for a long time. But no code.
