Modifying the Ribbon in Access (using VBA)

I really need some pointers with the Ribbon within Access 2016.

Ideally, I want a single, customisable bar only along the top for my application.  I don't need the "Quick Access toolbar" or multiple Ribbons (with their tab headings) etc., as my application requires as much screen space as possible - with only few user functions along the top.

I would prefer to still use a single ribbon for my functions (rather than cobble together my own buttons, which never look as good) - but all of the other stuff is not required.

Any ideas
