As much as the Ribbon is your best friend, it can also take up a lot of screen real estate and the multicolor organization of buttons on it, could interfere with your ability to get a clear idea of what your document formatting really looks like.

The kind creators of Word have graciously added functionality to the Ribbon that allows you to quickly hide and redisplay it.

The first option is to use the 'Minimize the Ribbon' button (circled in yellow in the image below) located at the top right-hand corner of the screen below the window minimize/maximize/close buttons. Click the icon once to hide the ribbon.

Another way of hiding the Ribbon is to right click anywhere on the Ribbon and select 'Minimize the Ribbon'.

Even with the Ribbon minimized you can continue accessing all the groups and functions by clicking on the relevant tab. This will redisplay the Ribbon, but immediately hide it again after you make your selection or click back into your document.
When your Ribbon is minimized, the screen display will look like this:
To redisplay the Ribbon in all of its multicolored glory, either click on the expand the Ribbon button (circled in yellow in the image above) or right click on any of the tabs and click on 'Minimize the Ribbon' again to deselect it.

For all the shortcut groupies out there, you can hide and display the Ribbon by holding down the Control key on your keyboard and pressing the F1 key.
