Hello Richard,

Hope all is Well! Quick question, I noticed that the caption text on your forms appears to be centered rather than left justified. Can you please tell me how you do that?

It all in what Ver of Access you have.   I run 2019 and mine are to the left. Nothing I can do. :)

Hello Juan,

Got it. I am using Office 365 and mine are all to the left as well. Would like to have the centered them on some occasions, but not that big a deal. Appreciate the response. Have a Great Day!

I found two ways of doing this: 1. Place 20 or so spaces before your form title. ex.:   ... spaces...         My Form Title.
2.  Make a label or text box with your Form title, make the back color to match the back color of form, go to form properties and change borderstyle to none.
** Don't do boderstyle change unless you can access Navigation Pane. Borderstyle to none removes the min, max, close, and ability to switch back to design view. **

Yeah, it's based on the version of Access you have and also the version of Windows you're running. I have the same 365 subscription running on a Win8 and a Win10 machine. The Win8 has the centered captions. Win10 has them left aligned. Pete's suggestions will work. There's also this: Custom Form Backgrounds.
