You can switch your document to Read Mode in Microsoft Word to hide the ribbon and see it in full screen. Read Mode gives you a simpler layout so you can focus on what’s on the page. As an alternative, you can use the buttons in the title bar to switch to full screen and still make changes to your document by clicking on the text you want to change.

Read Mode

Click the “View” tab on the command ribbon and choose “Read Mode” in the Views group to reduce the ribbon to just the “File,” “Tools,” and “View” tabs. If you’d rather not see these tabs, click the “Auto-Hide Reading Toolbar” button in the title bar. Press “Esc” to get out of Read Mode and back to Print Layout, where you can see the ribbon.

Auto-Hide Ribbon

Click the arrow and square icon in the title bar, which says “Ribbon Display Options,” and then choose “Auto-hide Ribbon” to switch to full screen mode. When the ribbon goes away, the page moves up. Click “Ribbon Display Options” and then “Show Tabs and Commands” to bring up the ribbon and leave full screen mode.

Touch Screens

To switch from standard view to full view, tap the “Full Screen Mode” button or tap “Ribbon Display Options” on the title bar and then tap “Auto-Hide Ribbon.” Tap the three dots in the title bar and then tap “Exit Full Screen Mode” to go back to the normal view. You can also tap “Ribbon Display Options” and then “Show Tabs and Commands” to get back to the standard view and edit your Word document.
