    Question Shutter Bar - How to make default "Closed" upon database open

    Is there a way to make the shutter bar be closed on database open?

    I already have an autoexec macro to take people to a main menu, but would like to ensure the shutter bar is closed for aesthetics and to keep people away from clicking on something.

    Thank you,

    What is 'shutter bar' - navigation pane?

    Can use project setting to open with the navigation pane collapsed. However, F11 will expand the pane unless you also disable Access special keys. Also, holding shift key while opening db will override most project settings.
    Office Button > Access Options > Current Project > set properties

    I use project settings, VBA code, and special system table to customize ribbon and completely disable the navigation pane and prevent F11 activation. However, the shift key is still active.
