Minimizing the Ribbon

Follow

If you want to increase your workspace you can minimize the Ribbon. The tabs are the only parts of the Ribbon that are displayed when the Ribbon is minimized.

  1. Right-click anywhere on the Ribbon or the Quick Access Toolbar and click Minimize the Ribbon.
  2. Only the Ribbon Tab Bar is visible on a minimized Ribbon.
  3. To restore the Ribbon to its original size, right-click anywhere on the Ribbon and uncheck Minimize the Ribbon, or double-click any tab on the Ribbon.

You can temporarily maximize the Ribbon by clicking on any tab on the Ribbon. When you click a control in the Ribbon or on another element in the page, the Ribbon will return to the minimized state until you uncheck the Minimize the Ribbon command as explained above.
