Starting Access

If you've never opened Access before, click on your Start button in the lower left-hand corner of your screen. Click on All Programs and then on the Microsoft Office folder. Then at the top, you'll see Microsoft Access with a red letter A. Go ahead and click on that. Now, please note that the appearances of these windows may be different if you are using Windows Vista or XP. But the procedure is the same. Now, if you've opened Access before, you'll see it on the Start menu. You can click right on it to open up a blank database, or if you hover your cursor over it, you'll get a flyout menu, and you can pick one of the databases to open that way.

Now, note that you might not have anything here right now, if you haven't used Access before. But let's go back to the file we've already opened. Once you have the window open, click on the middle button in the upper right-hand corner to maximize it, so it fills the screen. Now, we are ready to go.
