Is it still possible to size a form? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using, and somewhat new to, Access 2013.

    In Access 2007 it was possible to create a form and determine it's size. Is that possible in Access 2013? It seems that every form I create in Access 2013 takes up the whole screen space that isn't the ribbon or the left side object list. Is it not possible to size a form any more?

    Thanks  --Fred

  • Sure. 

    • File -> Options
    • Under Current Database, near the top, look for the Options entitled Document Window Options and select Tabbed Documents.
    • Close and reopen your database.
