    And I can't see your attachment
    I think you mean you can't see the navigation pane

    Go to File ... Options ...Current Database & tick Display Navigation Pane

    Display navigation pane is already selected. I can just see a sliver of it but am unable to resize it.

    Still can't see your attachment.
    Can you see the >> button at the top of the nav pane? If so, double click it

    Just in case my previous answer didn't help, here are two functions you may find useful

    Code:
    Public Function MaximizeNavigationPane()
    
        DoCmd.NavigateTo "acNavigationCategoryObjectType"
        DoCmd.Maximize
    
    End Function
    Code:
    Public Function MinimizeNavigationPane()
    
        DoCmd.NavigateTo "acNavigationCategoryObjectType"
        DoCmd.Minimize
    
    End Function

    It turns out hitting PF 11 allowed me to resize the navigation pane so I could view its contents. Thanks

    Excellent but I thought you'd already tried that before posting.
    You may find it worth keeping the two functions for future use
