The Ribbon and Word Screen
An overview of the Microsoft 365 Word screen and Ribbon functionality.
When to use
The advantage of collapsing ribbons when using a small laptop or tablet is to provide more screen room for your document. The same benefit comes with using the zoom control lever.
To operate the ribbon functionality:
- On any ribbon title, double-click. This will collapse the ribbons. Then to use the buttons, click the ribbon title to view the buttons.
- To expand the ribbons and lock them into place, again double-click any ribbon title.
- Another way to Expand or Collapse the ribbons is to RIGHT CLICK on any ribbon tab, and choose “Collapse the Ribbon”
To operate the zoom control functionality:
The zoom control feature on the bottom right of the screen is to assist in your document legibility view while formatting.
The zoom control does NOT affect font size, and only changes how large or small your document appears while you are working.Login to download
