Show and hide the ribbon

Hiding the ribbon

This can be really useful when you want a larger working area and clear away the clutter.  Below are three ways in which you can show or hide the ribbon as required.

  1.   Click the up arrow icon at the right hand side of the ribbon.  Or right click on the up arrow and select ‘Minimize the Ribbon’ option. (Ribbon minimised)
  2.   Double-click one of the tabs at the top of the ribbon to toggle the ribbon on and off.
  3.   The keyboard shortcut – simply press [Ctrl]+[F1].
