Use VBA to find the name of the first sheet in a workbook

How can I use vba to find the name of the first sheet in a workbook?
I use this code to copy from the first sheet to another sheet in the workbook:
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("b10:d10").Copy Sheets("Sales").Range("B2")

What I want is to use some vba code to return name of the first sheet in the workbook to a vaiable that I can use in the code. Something like this:
strFirstSheet = "somehow find name of first sheet"
Sheets(strFirstSheet).Range("b10:d10").Copy Sheets("Sales").Range("B2")

Maybe a strange problem but it makes sense in my setting. Appreciate any help.

pls try

Sheets(1).Range("b10:d10").Copy Sheets("Sales").Range("B2") 
strFirstSheet = Sheets(1).Name
Sheets(strFirstSheet).Range("b10:d10").Copy Sheets("Sales").Range("B2")

For the first created but not, necessarily, the first shown left-to-right across the bottom of the application window:

strFirstSheet = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets(1).Name


strFirstSheet = Workbooks("NameofFile.xlsm").Worksheets(1).Name

Since VBA starts with 1 instead of 0, the below statement will return the name of the first sheet
Public Function GetFirstSheet() As String
    GetFirstSheet = Application.Sheets.Item(1).Name
End Function
