Hi UA Nation,

Good Day!

I am using the MS Access application in maximize mode, but the window taskbar is hidden, Even I use a button for minimize but still the MS ACCESS back end is open, How I can minimize all MS Access to access the Task bar?? Or is there any other way to show the windows taskbar if I use "Docmd.maximize" function... Thank you all

rizmin, The Windows taskbar is always accessible. If the taskbar setting is to "hide", it will appear with a bump of the mouse cursor. That's regardless of what's covering up the area - a maximized window or not. This is all a function of Windows and you have (almost) no control over what a user will set in any case. He can set it to hide or appear fixed. As a personal preference, I try to avoid the Docmd.maximize command because it's "sticky". Once done it applies to all your forms even when you don't want it to.

If the taskbar does not appear with a bump, overlaying the bottom of a window, something else is going on but on a Windows settings level.
