The new Microsoft Office ribbons are an interesting feature, yet they take up additional
screen real estate. A small,yet nifty trick will allow you to hide the ribbons and un-hide
them when needed: Simply double click the label of a ribbon.
Once you do so, the document you are working on receives the additional screen real estate
and the ribbon can be brought back into view by clicking the label of the ribbon you need.
Once the option that you want to use has been clicked and you return to your document the
ribbon disappears. To bring the ribbon back simply double click the label again.
