    Have a look at Tools/Startup...

    You can set a lot of options here, for instance the form displayed when the database is opened, and whether users can use the standard toolbars, menus etc.

    In addition to my earlier reply:

    If you want to prevent users from accidentally getting into the Database window, you can set the startup options (Tools/Startup...): don't display the database window, don't allow standard shortcut keys (in Advanced>>) etc.

    The administrator (and anyone else) can bypass the startup options by holding down the Shift key while opening the database. There are ways to disable the Shift key bypass, but that still doesn't mean that your database is really secured. If you do a search in this Forum on, for instance, "disable bypass" (without the quotes), you'll find lots of information on this subject.

    If you really want to protect your database, you need database security. Again, a search will yield more information.
