Generally, when building a new database based on one of the supplied
database templates supplied with Access, new Access users overlook the naming
of their new database or they are not satisfied with the name that they first

With your database open, go to the Tools menu and select Startup… from the
dropdown. The Startup dialog appears. In the upper-left of the dialog, enter or
change the name for your database in the Application Title field.
Click the Ok button and then look at the upper left of the Access Application
Titlebar; it should now reflect the name that you have chosen.
