Hello all-
I am using duel monitors and moved an Access application from my main window
to my secondary window. I then went into a database that I am working on and
when trying to access a controls properties, the properties no long shows up.
I am noticing that the Form Header, Footer and details section extend way
past the screen.

I tried using the alt key, to access the properties move menu, however it
does not seem to work. I have disconnected the second monitor however this
does not appear to fix the problem either. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks,
CF

How about resizing you resolution of your monitor? When clicking in the left
upper most corner of a form (double click or right click) you should be able
to see the properties appear. If it is undocked doubleclick on the titlebar
of the properties window and it will dock itself automatically to the form.
Then I think when you resize you screen to antoher resolution you should be
able to see the controlproperties again.

Thanks for the help Maurice, however I did try lowering my resolution. I

When I click on the properties button on the ribbon, it does not highlight in
my existing applications and no tool bar still. However when I start a new
formthe Add Existing Fields button is highlighted however there is no Fields
docked menu. I do notice that the vertical and horizontal scroll bars extend
way off into the form.

I also tried the registry modifcation but that did not seem to work. Is
there an option in the registery to undock the properties menu so I can then
in the registery change the location of the popup version of the properties
menu?

If you lost view on the Properties pane, e.g. while Access doesn't notice your additional monitor is disconnected, you can use this VBA procedure to move the Properties pane to the top left corner of the current screen.

Public Sub ShowPropertySheet()
With CommandBars("Property Sheet")
.enabled = True
.Top = 0
.Left = 0
End With
End Sub
