    I don't even know how to describe this. I've been devolping in access for
    many years. when i use my lap top without a mouse attached (ie, using the
    sensor pad), i can make a combination of moves with the sensor pad and
    left/right click and the database window disappears!!!

    hitting f11 does not work!! nothing appears. i can reimport every object
    into a new db, but this rework gets really old because i do this about once a
    week.

    this only happens using my laptop, without a mouse.

    anyone ever seen this? i saw one other post, but the one response was not
    helpful.

    It sounds like you are somehow moving the database window offscreen.
    Maybe your touchpad driver has a an accelerating drag feature that lends
    itself to this; I don't know. When this happens, see if you can get
    the database window to reappear by clicking the menu item Window ->
    Cascade.

    Dirk, you are a genius!! Cascading didn't work, but tiling did.

    I've been tortured by this for a couple of years now, thanks for your help!!
