That works, however, it removes the items on the accdb copy.  My goal is to remove it so the staff cannot see it, but it is still there for Admins.

Is that possible?

That would be picky. Office App customization is by user. My icons may be different than another user who signs on.

So if you only change the user's icons, then an admin who logs on (different user name) would see the standard icons.

There is also Options > Current Database > Use Access Special Keys which you can uncheck.

I suggest you to use access runtime. It disable everything, you want. Both admin & users

Another option is converting the database. Check this article:

Thanks.  closing for the night.  I'll work on it tomorrow.  Note, unchecking Access special keys made no difference for me.

If you want different ribbons for different users, you'll have to go through a few steps:

1. Setup some form of login for the database. That could be as simple as grabbing the username to implementing a login form.
2. Create ribbons for each user type
3. When a user logs in, set the ribbon based on the user type.

Peter's software has LASsie for the first part: http://www.peterssoftware.com/las.htm. You could also create your own with a few tables and a login form.

You can create ribbons by hand, but it's a difficult process. Most Access devs use something like Ribbon Creator: http://www.ribboncreator2016.de/en/. Note those are Access version specific, so if you end up using this be sure to get the right version.
