Access 2010 - Visual Basic Editor - How do I enable the Developer Tab and get it on the ribbon?

Good afternoon.  To get quick access to the VB Editor, I'm trying to get the Developer Tab to show on the ribbon.  I stepped thru the following procedure very carefully a couple of times, but when I got to Step 4, I did not see the Developer checkbox that is referred to.  Any suggestions?   Thanks.  WallyTee

***************************************************************************************************
1.      On the File tab, choose Options to open the Options dialog box.
2.      Click Customize Ribbon on the left side of the dialog box.
3.      Under Choose commands from on the left side of the dialog box, select Popular Commands.
4.      Under Customize the Ribbon on the right side of the dialog box, select Main Tabs in the drop down list box, and then select the Developer checkbox.
5.      Click OK.

The File menu is also called the Backstage. See: MSDN: Introduction to the Office 2010 Backstage View for Developers

Thank you so much.  I'll try both of your suggestions and let you know if succeed. BTW, I'm not a programmer or even a highly advanced user, but I do want to learn to use VBA.  WallyTee
