  • It is common to create a form that is used as the main menu/navigation. You can then set eh navigation pane to not display at start up.

    In the Access options for the current database set the start up form to be your desired form. Set the navigation pane to not display

  • You didn't say what features your own Navigarion pane would have. If you want to closely mimick the built-in one, that's a non-trivial task.

    Alternatives include building your own startup form that launches the various forms and reports, or building a ribbon to essentially do the same.

  • One common task is the switchboard or you could create a form with listbox.

    Not a trivial task to create custom look like Navigation Pain.
