Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting startup options and custom icons, part of Access 2016 Essential Training.
- To give your database a polished appearance,…consider setting some of these startup options.…Let's take a look and see what's available…by going up to the File tab,…and then coming down to Options.…Then, I'm going to choose the Options…for the Current Database.…We can set things like the Application Title.…I'm going to click here and type in Landon Hotel.…We can specify an Application Icon, too…by pressing the Browse button here,…and inside of our Desktop folder,…on the Exercise Files, and Chapter 12,…I've got an icon file that we can use, this Landon_Icon.ico.…
Notice that we can use icon files…in the ICO or CUR type or we can use bitmap files as well.…Let's go ahead and press OK,…and that adds in the file path to our icon…that we want to use.…We can also specify a form that'll…open up automatically on the startup of our database.…Right now, it's set to none, but I can set mine…to one like the Navigation Form for instance.…We have several different options here…for controlling some of the parameters of our database.…
