    OK, this was really stupid of me! I just finished making changes to my form,
    and
    I was just playing around with my startup options.

    I unchecked everything in the start up options window - just to see what
    would happen. HA!!

    Now my form opens up very nicely, but I can't get all the menus and design
    view back or anything - YIKES!

    If I click on the "design" icon, it says I may not have exclusive rights to
    the form, and any changes I make may not be saved...etc...

    How do I get back to normal menus, icons...etc.?

    Hold the [Left Shift] key while you launch the access database. This
    will by-pass the startup options you've set. Then you can get back
    into Tools>Startup to correct what you like.
