Touch Mode in Access: Overview

            Touch mode in Access gives easy access to the buttons and commands within the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar. When you enter touch mode, you enlarge the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar. Also, you add extra space around the buttons and commands within them. This helps you access the buttons and commands on a touch-based tablet.

            To enable touch mode in Access, click the drop-down arrow at the right end of the Quick Access toolbar. Doing this then displays a listing of the most commonly used commands. Then click or tap the “Touch/Mouse Mode” command in the drop-down menu. Doing that then adds that button to the Quick Access toolbar.

            You can then enable or disable touch mode. To do this, click or tap the “Touch/Mouse Mode” button in the Quick Access toolbar. From the drop-down menu that then appears, select the mode you prefer to use. You can choose either “Mouse” or “Touch” from the drop-down menu.

            When you enable “Touch” mode, the buttons within the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar appear larger. They also have more space surrounding them onscreen. You can select the “Mouse” choice to toggle touch mode off. Doing this restores the default size of the buttons onscreen.
