Hi,
I stumbled upon this guide. And i also tried the method as described in the comments which is:
File->Options->Current Database
Uncheck “Display document tabs” Choose Tabbed Documents.
In above also uncheck Display navigation Pane.
To hide the ribbon, execute this ONE line of VBA in your startup:
DoCmd.ShowToolbar “Ribbon”, acToolbarNo

But i didn't manage to get that running, when i try to put the VBA code into my opening forms on load event, it gives me an error, saying "ribbon" is not valid.

So my question: is there another way to automatically launch a form without any of the access parts in the background?

there are numerous discussion here.
try searching "hide access window" (not my fav) or use Custom Ribbon.

I think on this one you need to make your Access version known. Perhaps your settings need to be (but are not)
Allow Built-in Toolbars - yes
Allow Full Menus - no
Allow Default Shortcut Menus - no

See my example app: Control the application interface
This includes code to do any or all of the following: hide ribbon/navigation pane/taskbar/application window.

If you want to stop knowledgeable users being able to reinstate any of these, you may need to apply security to prevent that.
See my website article: Improve security in Access databases
oh i didn't know you released more of these, amazing, thank you!
I'm toying around with your "attention seek" demo, it's been really great so far, at the moment i'm trying to implement your balloon messages.
I thank you for that as well!
