Ever work in an office document and need more screen real estate to see all of your large document? Want to hide the Ribbon in one of the Office 2007/2010/2011 programs (Word/Excel/PowerPoint/Access)? Have you ever accidentally hidden it and didn’t know how you did it?
To minimize the Ribbon, you can do one of the following:
1) In Office 2007, click the Customize Access Toolbar button and then click Minimize the Ribbon.
2) In Office 2010, click the Minimize the Ribbon button (the upwards-pointing button located in the upper-right corner). To restore, click the Expand the Ribbon button (the same location, but now the button is pointing downwards).
3) Right-click the Ribbon, and click Minimize the Ribbon.
4) Use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+F1.
