Add-Ins menu

In 2010, is there a way to make the "Add-Ins" menu the default ribbon displayed when the database launches?

ok ...  IF, you have an MDB running inside of A2010, see the images below
1) shows my Custom menu from A2003 - on the Add-Ins menu
2) make these settings
3) shows result when db is loaded.

Problem is ... with an ACCDB, the Menu Bar setting (image 2 above) is not present, so ... I get the result in the image below - NO  menu, obviously not acceptable.

The case in the post above is an A2003 MDB running inside of A2010 ... so, no problem per se.

The same MDB converted to ACCDB ...  I have not found a way to get the same result ...YET.  But I have not spent much time on this ... YET.  However, in the next couple of weeks I expect to have this resolved.

Are you working with an MDB or ACCDB ?

In any case, you should be aware of this tool:

and A2003 menu to A2010 Ribbon converter:

I've converted my .MDB to .ACCDB - does that mean I can make Add-Ins open as a default or I can't?

I'm sure there is a way, but I have not been able to figure out how to remove the FILE button.  Try the settings I showed above on the ACCDB.
