Here's a simplified switchboard with code that you can maintain.  It is based on the original Access Switchboard but has some modifications.  I have other, more extensive versions that use the additional columns in the Switchboard Items table and come with a Switchboard Items table maintenance form but this is a start.

Unlike the original Switchboard, it is not limited to 8 items per page.

It uses themes so if you change the theme of your app, the Switchboard form should adapt or you can colorize it yourself or add a background image.
