Hide Options (and other menus) from the Backstage
I created this demo as a response to a few questions at UtterAccess to illustrate how to use a custom Ribbon to hide the backstage menu. The users were particularly concerned about hiding the Options or the Privacy menu.
Since the backstage was introduced starting with Access 2010, this demo only applies to Access 2010 because the ribbon schema is different between Access 2007 and Access 2010.
It was recenttly brought to my attention that Access 2013 and 2016 backstage Control IDs are actually different from those used in Access 2010, which means the previous demo I posted may produce errors or unexpected results when used with Access 2013 or 2016.
As a result, I have updated the 2010 demo and also created a separate one for use with Access 2013 or 2016 - using the applicable Control IDs for each version.
Please download v1.1 if you're using Access 2010 and download v1.2 if you're using Access 2013 or 2016.
This demo was created using Access 2010 and tested using Access 2010, 2013, and 2016.
