Many people have a love-hate relationship with the so-called Ribbon in Windows software now. Getting rid of you will gain you back an extra 85 pixels of screen real estate space. Here’s a quick tip to hide the Ribbon.
Launch Outlook. Above the Ribbon and far right, just click the small up arrow.
To get the Ribbon back, simply click the tab you need.
As soon as you click outside the Ribbon it’ll disappear. Once hidden from view, you’ve freed up clutter and gained back a bit of extra space.
Do it with your email messages too. Follow the same steps to minimize the Ribbon as you compose your message.
If you decide you don’t like this feature, just go back by clicking the pin icon at far right.
Power Tip: Minimize or maximize the Ribbon faster by double clicking on one of the tabs.
