MS Access Menus Locked Down Accidentally

By tomhunady ·
MS Access AllowFullMenus and AllowShortcutMenus
set to False, preventing anyone from making changes to db. This means I cannot find a way to restore any of these menus.

If you hold the Shift key down when double clicking on the database to open it, you can go in and change your startup settings to AllowFullMenus and AllowShortcutMenus

I have tried that already. It doesn't work

Any other ideas?

I am trying to use VBA to reset the properties before opening the database.

Works for me.
Try opening it and then closing.
It should be on your MRU list on the file menu. Hold down the SHIFT key while you open the database and the Startup options will be bypassed

What is the MRU? I also was told to try Crtl + F4, this also did not work.

What happens when you HOLD DOWN the shift key while opening the database? It should open in Admin view with everything available. As a last resort you can open a new, blank database and import everything (forms/queries/etc) from the "locked" database into the new one. Then you can setup the Start options as you wish.
