You can customize the Ribbons to enhance your workflow, whether it's rearranging buttons on existing Ribbons or creating Ribbons of your own. To make you work in Access as efficient as possible, you can create your own Ribbons. Click on the File tab Backstage view and go down here to Options and then click on Customize Ribbon. Click the New Tab button, and a New Tab and Group appear. Click on New Tab and rename it, and I'll call this Alicia, and then I need to add at least one group on that Ribbon, and I'll rename that one Faves.
You can have several groups on a Ribbon. Now let's put our buttons on. It starts with Popular commands. I am going to choose Close Database and Cut and Copy and Paste, and then I am going to go down to All commands, and I am going to scroll down and find Conditional Formatting, and bring that over as well. If you change your mind, you can also Reset your customizations. Click OK, and here's my new Ribbon with all of my favorite commands on it.
Creating your own Ribbons turns Access into your own customized database solution, with frequently used commands all grouped together.
