Oh God! It’s getting out of Control!

    Hello Friends. I am Prabha Karan from Thanjavur (South India). Recently I explored the all the options found in an access form’s format category in the properties dialog. Most of the options are already familiar to me but the Control Box property. I don’t know what the use of that property is. But the status bar says that this property shows the control menu if put yes. Also I encountered a bizarre behavior that if we put no in its property, the close button in the form disappears. I heard about file menu, view menu and some other advanced menus too. But not Control menu. After searching for it a while I also did not found any menus like it in the access interface. But I definitely believe people here definitely crossed this before and hope they will explain it and its usage scenarios too. Thanks in advance.
