When you create a new database, Microsoft Office Access automatically saves the database to the default folder on your computer's hard disk. You can either select a different location when you save a new database or choose a new default folder location in which all new databases are automatically saved.

Change the default folder

  • Click File > Options.

  • Click the General category.

  • Under Creating Databases, either type the new folder location in the Default database folder box, or click Browse to choose a new folder location.
