Hiding the Ribbon bar
To maximise space when using a Tablet, the ribbon can be hidden by pressing the 'Hide ribbon' button in the top right hand corner of the ribbon bar or by double clicking on any free area at the top of the ribbon bar.
When hidden, the whole ribbon will collapse and can be shown again by pressing the same button or double clicking again.
With the ribbon bar collapsed, it is still possible to briefly display the various tabs by selecting them. Once clicked, the tab will display until the user clicks away from that tab.
