Default access close button

Just have another question.

Does anyone know how to deactivate the ms access close button.

I have already deactivated the close and min/max buttons on the forms that will be used, but now I'm trying to find a way to deactivate the close button for the whole program.

I prefer that the users quit the application by going back to the main menu first...

Is it also possible to deactivate the min/max button so only the minimalize button is activated?

If you make the form modal and pop up in the forms properties under 'other' the user wont be able to close the db until they close the form.

That I know, but it is not what I'm looking for. The button I want to disable is the close button of MS Access itself. So it is not the form button, but the office (or maybe the windows) button...
