First I would try to find out why it is overlapping.


To answer your question about the status bar:


for the current database:

File - Options - Current Database - Application Options - Display Status Bar


for Access = all databases:

File - Options - Client Settings - Display - Status Bar

thank you Status Bar has been checked..
This happens sometimes when you have unusual display settings. Right-click the desktop > Display Settings: play around with Scale and Display resolution to see if there are more favorable settings.
