    Hey All,
    Is there a way to set an access database to auto adjust settings in order to
    appear correctly on each users screen? I have a few users who have their
    desktop set to an extremely low resolution leading to a zoomed and blocky
    access display. Will they have to adjust this themselves or is there a better
    way. Please explain where to put and how to use any code. I am a VBA rookie.
    Thanks, Adam

    There's not a nice solution for this.

    If you buy the Access Developers Handbook by Getz et al (Sybex), the chapter
    on Forms (cpt 8 from memory) has code that shows how to resize the form and
    its objects based on the screen resolution of the user.

    But I find that clunky, and I hate the very concept that some developer
    thinks he has the right to enlarge all his text so it fills up my entire
    screen. I did not buy a high res to give him that option.

    So, ultimately you define the mimimum resolution your application will run
    at, and design for that. Used to be 800x600. These days I find must people
    accept 1024x768 as a minimum, and accept that they need to upgrade their
    monitor if they have less than that.
