MS Access 2010 Ribbon, return to default ribbon when form closes

I have successfully created a custom ribbon and have this ribbon showing when my forms open specifically the switchboard.  I have not assigned this ribbon to the entire database.  Forms only.  I want to return to the default ribbon when the Switchboard closes.  I have not successfully made this happen.  I  thought by not setting the custom ribbon to the entire database was all that was needed, but that seems not to be the case.

Thoughts are very much appreciated, I have "googgled" too many hours with no results on this one.

Thank you!

I have the switchboard modal, when it closes I see the navigation pane.  My custom ribbon is the home tab with delete record disabled and all other tabs hidden, well not visible.  I call this Mytab.  I have that on every form.  The switchboard has a us form and tree menu and user level restrictions set up to only show those with admin rights the tree to close the switchboard.  I need this for security reasons.  I wanted to have via or whatever it takes to make all tabs visible when the switchboard closes so that the admin does not have to close the db then press shift when opening to see all tabs they need for development work.  

The C&R is also not visible when the switchboard closes.  Good idea though, I had to think.

Thanks for the suggestion
