    Minimizing Ribbon -- ALL apps not just Office


    Hi there
    Please note that if you want to minimize the Menu Ribbon whether it's MS Office or Windows explorer (the large Ribbon uses a lot of screen Real estate on things like Netbooks) remember the CTRL-F1 key combo works for Non MS Office apps too like Windows explorer.

    Cheers
