Hi --- I have had previous experience with 2003, but I'm new to Access 2010.  

PROBLEM:  Using 2010's Switchboard Manager, I have developed a switchboard (menu) that I want to display on startup.  The problem is I cannot find a 'Startup Options' feature, nor can I find an "Office" button which supposedly displays those options.  I have looked in the Quick Access Toolbar and Ribbon customization screens, but I just can't see it.  I know they are there somewhere; I just can't find either one.  

Can you help?  Thanks in advance.   WallyTee

Here's a screenshot - the "Display Form" gets shown initially upon starting your database.
