Office 2010/2007: Ribbon minimize mode: maximize space by “Auto-Hiding” the Ribbon in Office (via: How-To Geek)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/06/08

The ribbons in Office 2010/2007 take up a lot of sceen estate.

Luckily, it is easy to maximize space by “Auto-Hiding” the Ribbon in Office 2010/2007: put the Ribbon in “Minimize Mode”.

The Ribbon will un-hide when you:

  • click on one of the Ribbon tabs
  • press the Alt key followed by a letter corresponding to a Ribbon tab

How-To Geek explains (with screen shots) how to put the Ribbon in “Minimize Mode”:

To put the Ribbon into minimized mode, just right-click an open area on the Ribbon and choose Minimize the Ribbon.

Edit:

In addition to that (thanks Matthijs!) you can switch the Ribbon to/from auto-hide behaviour by double-clicking on a ribbon tab.
