Shortcut to select the form's properties

In design mode when the properties window is open for a form, you can click
on any control to see its properties. In previous versions of Access, there
was an icon in the top left corner of the form to click to indicate you
wanted to select the form itself in the properties window. That icon seems
to have disappeared in Access 2007. In 2007, you can click on controls, the
header, the detail, but apparently not the form.

Am I just missing it?

Is there a shortcut in Access 2007 to see the form's properties, or is the
only way to do it by scrolling through all the controls until you find "Form"
from the dropdown list on the properties page?

I think you are referring to the square where the top and left rulers meet?

If so, this works in A2007 also.
On the Arrange tab of the ribbon, click Rulers in the Show/Hide group
(rightmost.)

Thanks! I've been wondering about that for a year now. Glad it finally
occurred to me to ask!
