In Access 2010 Power Shortcuts, Access expert Alicia Katz Pollock shares hundreds of tips and shortcuts to vastly increase efficiency and get the full power out of Access 2010. The course includes tips for working with the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar, managing files, customizing and automating Access, rapid data entry and editing, working with tables, queries, forms, and reports, managing your database, and much more. Exercise files accompany the course.
By default, Access will save your new databases in your Documents folder, but if you'd rather save them in a subfolder or another location on your computer you can tell Access to start there instead of having to change the location, every time you create a new file. To do this, click on the File tab to go into the Backstage View, and then on the Options button down near the bottom. Click on the General button at the top and then in the middle of the screen is the default database folder, I'll click Browse and I'll double-click on my company where I'm going to save all of my company files.
If I would like to make a new folder I can click on it; I'll call this Databases, and hit Enter to accept the name. I'll double-click on the subfolder so that I can see it in my bar at the top and down here, and click OK. Now it says Documents/Two Trees Olive Oil/Databases, I'll click OK. The next time I'll go to the File tab and to New I'll see that as my default location, saving straight to a specific location will save you repetitive navigation, every time you create a new database.
