I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Bug in Access 2016 Build 9126 - right-click fail

    With Build 9126, can no longer right-click on the title bar of open objects -- unless the database is set to "Tabbed Documents" in the Document Window Option. If it's set on "Overlapping Windows", then the right-click only works when on the object in the Navigation Pane.

    So if I design a Query and then view the Results of it, I have to Save the Query so I can access its Design View again.

          • Have custom application icon appear on taskbar in Access 2016

            Seems more like a bug - Other versions OK but a custom icon doesn't show in the taskbar in Access 2016.

                The Help system is actually a shared piece of engineering owned by a different team and surfaced within all of the Office applications. As such, this isn’t really an action item that the Access development team can take in isolation of the existing Office system.
                We have passed on this feedback to the right team for their consideration. They did ask us to forward on the following information to you:
                You can download an Access 2016 VBA CHM file on GitHub for offline use. You can find it here:
                https://github.com/OfficeDev/VBA-content/blob/master/README.md

                You can find 2013 version of VBA documentation here:
                https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40326

              • Fix the image issue with 2016 where they don't appear?

                Fix the current issue with images not displaying in forms/reports in Access 2016. Fix the issue of copying controls with images not working.

                Fix your bugs before tackling new projects/features.
