Quick Access

For these  Checkbox there's no RibbonXML Callback available, furthermore there's no option (SetOption) that could be set by using VBA.








Use following RibbonXML to hide the MRU:

   <tabidMso ="TabRecent" visible="false"/>


This setting is made to the registry and will be stored for the current user.

Use the following code to hide or display the recent databases at startup.


'Code into a new standard module:
Public Enum ShowQuickAccesDisplay
    show = 1
    hide = 0
End Enum
Public Sub SetBackstageQuickAccessDisplay(iShow As ShowQuickAccesDisplay)
  Dim objWSHShell As Object
  Set objWSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  objWSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Access\File MRU\Quick Access Display", iShow, "REG_DWORD"
  'In Excel use :
  ' objWSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Excel\File MRU\Quick Access Display", iShow, "REG_DWORD"
  'In Word use:
  ' objWSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\File MRU\Quick Access Display", iShow, "REG_DWORD"
  Set objWSHShell = Nothing
End Sub



   SetBackstageQuickAccessDisplay show 'Display


   SetBackstageQuickAccessDisplay hide 'Hide 

Ensure the resetting of the original value on closing the database.

Assume you have configured the help button to initiate a customize callback:

       <command idMso="Help" onAction="OnActionHelpButton"/>


While a click on the help button on the ribbon initiates the callback in a proper way, a click on the help button in the BackStage area opens the
Access help.

This is a bug in Access 2010 and the only option is to disable the Help button completely.

       <command idMso="Help" enabled="false"/>

No, you cannot hide only the "File" Tab. 

The following Code hide the Ribbon (with File Tab and BackstageView Menu):

  DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarNo 

View Ribbon:

  DoCmd.ShowToolbar "Ribbon", acToolbarYes
