Access 365. My status bar is half height. Record numbers etc. shows only half and are hard to read.
Happened a few years back, but don't remember what the fix is.
I'm a extremely low level Access user. But I've been using Word since it was on one 360 floppy. so Microsoft office has been my program forever. I updated from 2003 to 365. (May I say ...yuck?)
Here's a screenshot. Tried changing screen resolutions, font sizes, and have spent 2 hrs browsing for an answer.
Anyhow, hope someone can tell me the fix. I'll give an email as I might not remember to get back to this page. email@example.com
thanks for any help

@isladogs Yes I tried it and it doesn't change a thing. I would put up a screenshot but I looked at the other guy and his screenshot is exactly the same as mine. It appears that the Status bar at the bottom covers about 1/2 of the Navigation Bar inside a query or table window. Thanks for the suggestion. I am hoping someone can come up with an answer.

I have the same problem. Have tried changing resolution, font sizes, tabular view, disconnecting second monitor, hiding status bar, rebooting, etc. It is not specific to any one database. I created an extremely simple test database to prove this. The record selector is almost completely covered up in tables, queries, and forms. Haven't been able to find any resolution, and it's really frustrating not to be able to see how many records are in a set. Tried to upload a screen shot but it looks like I don't have permission.

Thanks for your willingness to look at this. My test database is literally just creating any new blank database. Any objects within it where the record navigator is displayed, it is covered up (seemingly by the status bar, but turning off the status bar does not resolve just makes it covered by the Windows taskbar instead).
My Windows version is: Windows 10 Enterprise Version 21H1 - Build 10.0.19043.1889 64-bit
MS Access version is: Access 365 - Build 16.0.15726.20174 64-bit
This is on a Lenovo T15 notebook. I tried the same thing on a co-worker's similar laptop and had the same issue. I also tested on another co-worker's Lenovo desktop with similar software config and that worked normally.
Playing around more, it seems like it may be related to the Windows taskbar but I still can't resolve it. If I set the taskbar to auto-hide, it doesn't actually auto-hide but now the record navigator is completely invisible/off the bottom of the screen (previously I could only see the very top of the record nav bar, but not enough to use it) *and* the File-Options button in Access is also not visible as it's under the Windows task bar.
Fun stuff, thanks again for your willingness to look at it. I will see if I can find anything re: auto-hiding the Windows taskbar on this Lenovo model. I am also trying to track down a usb monitor to see if that works.

I do not know what caused this to start happening out of nowhere. I have used Access for well over a decade and it just suddenly started doing this. Also, why does Access not correct this? They have known about it for some time now. They have had plenty of time to fix it.

OK - still happy to look at any example database if you can upload or email it to me as previously explained.
You should be able to upload it if you use the full text editor option as shown in the screenshot
