Access 2007 Office Button / adding items / Backup

P: n/a
ARC
Does anyone know if you can add your own items to the round office button in
the top left? I'm guessing the answer is no, and that you can only hide the
default items, but it would be great if you could add your own. Reason
being, I have a setup options screen, and a backup utility that would go
perfectly there for my custom app. As it stands, I'm not quite sure where to
put them, or where to put an old-style "File, Register..." type screen for
entering a customer key.

Speaking of the backup utility, when you click the Office button, you do get
a "Manage" menu, that has a backup command. This is great! However, I don't
suppose it would backup a linked database? That would be really sweet, then
I could ditch my backup util.

Thanks!

I just figured out one of my questions. You can put your own buttons in the
office menu. This is very cool! If you look around Microsoft's pages on
customizing the ribbon, there's no mention that you can add your own.

Now about that backup question... Can Access 2007's built-in backup be set
to backup a linked database?
