Microsoft Access 2016 control box RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having trouble with the control box and/or turning off the minimize,maximize and/or close buttons on forms.

    I'm getting the following instead of the minimize, maximize or x. (If minimize is disabled, swatchBI shows; if maximize is disabled, swatchbi shows; same for x. Also, in this example, if I click the minimize character it shows Restore Window.

    (I can't insert a picture of the screen as my account hasn't been verified yet.)

    Changing control box to No does nothing.

    Please advise. Thank you.

  • I have no idea what you mean with the various spellings of swatchBI
    Do you have a link?

    Also if there is an important screenshot, you can certainly post that in OneDrive or one of its lookalikes and post a link here.

    Is this even a question about Microsoft Access, the database program?
