When I converted my Access 2003 database to Access 2010, my custom menus were imported into the Add-ins Tab.  They were not macros.  How do I edit these, and/or move them to my custom Tab that I have created?      

Is it true that new functions that I want to add to my customTab, have to be done by a macros?

In my final distributable version, can I prevent the quick access menu, the file Tab, and the access help icon, from being displayed?  

Thanks in advance.

You really have three separate questions here, ...not one....
As you know, this site only allow one distinct question per post.

"How do I edit these,"
AFAIK, you can't. (at least not with the old "Customize" menus)
Either you must edit them in Access 2003 and bring them into Access 2010, or recreate them as a "Ribbon" (or ribbon element)

"Is it true that new functions that I want to add to my customTab, have to be done by a macros?"
No, see the Link above for info on creating Ribbon interfaces

"In my final distributable version, can I prevent the quick access menu, the file Tab, and the access help icon, from being displayed? "
Again, too much to consider as some of these can be disabled and some cannot.
Each perhaps requiring a separate approach and possibly involving VBA.

Sorry for the 3 questions.  I didn't know, but it makes sense.

I'll put on a separate question on the File Tab.
