Is there a keyboard shortcut to minimize/maximize the ribbon in MS products? I'd like to do this at least in MS Word 2007 and Outlook 2007

Windows, OS X, or other? – Lukasa Jun 3 '11 at 13:12
@Lukasa: Office 2007 only exists for Windows (the corresponding OS X release is Office 2008). – grawity Jun 3 '11 at 15:36
@grawity: That is totally right, and highly embarrassing. Excuse me while I go hide my head in the sand for a while. :P – Lukasa Jun 3 '11 at 17:26

This also appears to work in Office 2010. – edusysadmin Jun 3 '11 at 13:46
You're right. There is even a little, clickable arrow on the top right side. – timbooo Jun 3 '11 at 13:48
