If you work on the same Access Database all the time, you don't have to go through the extra step of opening the file everyday; you can set Access up to open the specific file automatically by default. To do this click on the File tab to go into backstage view and then down to the Options button at the bottom, click on Client Settings and scroll down to the Advance section near the bottom. The first item there is Open last used database when Access starts, I'll put a check mark in front of it and click OK.
Now quit Access and I'll open it again from the Start menu without choosing the file, just by clicking on Microsoft Access 2010 and there it is, my same file opens again. Opening your last used database saves a step and precious seconds every time you use Access.
