Function to completely hide Access Window (tick box)
Currently we are having to use custom modules to disable the main access window although these work their the cleanest way of doing things, would it be possible to add a function in the options menu to hide the Main Access window and only show Popup forms and reports.
This should be a simple setting under "Current Database" in the options. Likewise, it should be easy to set the top/left corner and height/width of the form relative to the screen--not just inside the Access app.

To enable hiding the Access Shell you must make some changes to the options of your Current Database.
Open your database and click on the Office Button the large round button in the top left of your window.
Then click on the Access Options button located at the bottom of this window.
Then click on the Current Database button on left side of window should be the second one down.
The settings you need are:
Tabbed windows enabled (as opposed to overlapping windows)
Uncheck display document tabs.
Uncheck display navigation pane.
Display of status bar is optional.
And of course so is navagtion buttons on a form.
Your start up form Pop Up property has to be set to No
Now, in your startup form, execute this ONE LINE of code in the On_Load event of your start up form.
DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarNo
That is it!
