I am not sure why has been added to the tag as a synonym. Access applies to multiple situations - disk access, facebook access, etc.

But is there really a scenario where it makes sense other than in the context of Microsoft Access? –  Pëkka Dec 1 '11 at 17:40
    
Is there any reason why people looking for ms-access should be plagued with totally irrelevant questions and answers? –  Remou Dec 1 '11 at 17:43
    
When I read this, I expected people to be confusing "access" with "accessibility" (e.g. "How can I access Windows's color scheme settings to accomodate vision-impaired users?"). A quick check shows that this isn't an issue in practice. –  Pops Dec 1 '11 at 17:44

I removed the synonym. The term "access" can mean any number of things besides ms-access, and co-opting it for Microsoft Access doesn't make sense to me.

(note to self: isn't the best of tags.)
