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

Andy, you can no longer create commandbar menus for your forms, but you create your own ribbons using the tool available here.

Another option would be to place a couple of command buttons in your form header and have the click event of those raise shortcut menus, this is a technique I use often.  I have written three articles on how to create and use shortcut menus here in EE (search for "Commandbar", then check the Articles checkbox).
