On my windows 7 box, I can see the ACCDB name of an MS ACCESS program in the APPLICATIONS window.

This is very helpful when running several several ACCDBs concurrently when deciding to take action such as ending a task or changing affinity or priority.


How can I get this information in W8.1 ?

You mean you open task manager, go to the processes tab and you don't see what file access has open? I don't have access right here and now to reproduce, but with word, I can see the file name in task manager of 8.1.

Try to download and install Process Explorer to see whether you can do what you want.

McKnife - I'm not doubting it can; I just haven't SEEN it -; what is the name of the ACCDB in your screen shot. I was expecting something like:
myDatabase.accdb or
myOldDatabase.mdb
are you saying in screen shot the name is Database11.accdb?

thanks
