It depends in which version you want to have this Switchboard.

You can look into Customized Menu/ Ribbons or you create your own Form with buttons.
I mean you wont find that many examples as it is pretty straightforward on how to create these.

How to creat a menubar;

How to customize the Ribbon (2007/2010);

Adding Custom Dynamic Menus to the Office Fluent User Interface (2007/2010);

Create your own Ribbon;

Switchboard Alternatives:


Several here:


btw ... I've have checked out all of the above swb's ... and they are all pretty cool in one way or another.

And already noted above by danishani: ... but for completeness:
Easily create your own Windows-like custom menus. Everything you need is here - no code ... see this link:

Not sure it that article mentions it, but ... when you are in the Customize mode (dialog) ... if you hold down the Control key, you can drop and drag (ie, copy) menu items from one place to another ... handy for making a new menu that is similar another one.
