INFO: Using Access on a Windows tablet

I have a Windows tablet with a 10 inch screen (Linx 1010) on which I have installed Access 2010.
Although Access isn't designed for touch screens (hopefully it will be in the future), it works well with one important exception.
The VBE opens with no menu bar or toolbars.
This limits its use for editing code significantly.

The code window, object browser & project explorer windows are all displayed and I've added the Immediate window using CtrL+G but want full functionality

After several fruitless hours adding code in the Immediate window to try & trigger the menu bar & toolbars to appear, uninstalling & reinstalling, I found the answer by trial & error - its a tablet mode issue

Switch off tablet mode and the menu bar & toolbars appear
Switch it back on & they're still in place whilst Access remains open.
Restart Access in tablet mode & they're gone again
A very irritating glitch but at least I have a work-round
I have reported this via the Feedback hub.
