Minimize the large toolbar in MS Word 2007

With the new version of MS Word, you may have noticed the large toolbar (or “ribbon” as Microsoft calls it). On one hand this may provide quick links to a variety of tools. However, it may also be a nuisance if you’re projecting this onto a screen – taking up a large part of the top of the screen.

In order to minimize this toolbar, follow the images below:

1. Click the drop down icon

2. Select, “Minimize the Ribbon”.

3. There you have it – much more space to provide content or view your document.
