In this demonstration, I show you how you can create a VSTO "v3" add-in for Microsoft Office Access that customizes the Ribbon. You’ll find a new item called Ribbon Support that you can use to add a Ribbon class and XML file to your project. By default, this Ribbon class includes some code that creates a new tab, group and button to the Ribbon, and also a method that displays “Hello World” when you click the button.

Next, I show you how you can add a bitmap image to the Ribbon. This video is 7.5 minutes long, and can be viewed at Demo 3: Customizing the Ribbon for Access. Note that this demo has a file size of about 5 MB.
