Restore original toolbar, button, and command settings

Do one or more of the following:

ShowReset all default settings for a built-in toolbar or menu bar to display either the original buttons or the menus and commands and to restore their original property settings.

Microsoft Access will also restore the original property settings for the toolbar or menu bar itself, including restoring its screen location and size, and hiding or showing the bar.

  1. On the View menu, point to Toolbars, and then click Customize.
  2. On the Toolbars tab, click Properties.
  3. In the Selected Toolbar box, select the name of the toolbar or menu bar you want to reset default settings for.
  4. Click the Restore Defaults button.

The Restore Defaults button isn't available until Microsoft Access detects that the selected built-in toolbar (built-in toolbar: In Access 2003 and earlier, a toolbar that is part of the user interface whenit is installed on your computer. In contrast, a custom toolbar is one that you create for your own database application.) or menu bar has been modified.
