Chapter 1. Getting Started with Access > Viewing the Access Window

Viewing the Access Window

When you open a database, the Access program window opens and displays a title bar, menus, toolbars and either the Database window or a switchboard. The Database window is where you can create and edit your databases using the Database toolbar and database objects. A switchboard is a window that gives easy access to the most common actions a database user might need to take.

Parts of the Access Window

  • The Database title bar displays the name of the open database.

  • The menu bar contains menus that represent groups of related commands.

  • The Database toolbar contains buttons that you can click to carry out commands.

  • The status bar displays information about the items you click or the actions you take.
