One of the distinguishing features of Office applications is the Ribbon, which was introduced in Office 2007 and replaced the traditional drop-down menus and toolbars. You can customize what you see in the ribbon by right-clicking on it and selecting Customize the Ribbon, but sometimes we just don’t want to see it while we’re working, or we want it to take up less space.

This video will show you how to minimize and auto-hide the ribbon in Office Web Apps and switch between three different ribbon views in Office 2013.

Curious about how the Office Ribbon came to be? “The Story of the Ribbon” gives you a behind-the scenes peek into the ribbon’s implementation.
