Some people love the clean look of Word 2013, but if you’re like me, it feels cold. and bleh.
The ribbon only displayed when I clicked on a menu item. As soon as I began typing, it would disappear. This was not helpful. I didn’t want to go get the ribbon every time I needed something on it. That ribbon needed to sit and stay.
Here’s how to get your ribbon back: Move your mouse to the top right corner of the MS Word document editing screen and click on the little teeny, tiny, black and white box with the arrow pointing up. (If you hover over it, you’ll see the words “Ribbon Display Options.)
