Access 2010 FAQ


Is it possible to not show the Navigation Pane when I open my database in Access 2010?


Yes you can easily do this, but first you'll need to open the Access Options dialog box. If you need help with that, please see the following page: Related Topic


Now that you have the Access Options dialog box open, click the Current Database category on the left side. Under the Navigation section, clear the option called Display Navigation Pane, as seen in the following screenshot.



Click OK to save your changes and close the Access Options dialog box. The next time you or someone else opens the database, Access will not display the Navigation Pane.
