I get asked many times - "Where did my ribbon go?". It is easy to hide the ribbon by mistake, and sometimes it is beneficial to hide it in order to see more of your document.
As with all Microsoft products, there are multiple ways of achieving a task.
Your options here are to:
- Click the down arrow icon at the end of the Quick Access Toolbar and tick or untick the 'Minimize the Ribbon' option. This menu can also be accessed by right-clicking anywhere on the ribbon.
- Double-click one of the tabs at the top of the ribbon to toggle the ribbon on and off. Finally, you can always use the keyboard shortcut – simply press [Ctrl]+[F1].
