Topic A: Customizing the Ribbon
Hiding and removing tab elements
You can remove entire groups of commands from a tab. However, you cannot remove
individual commands from the built-in groups. Likewise, you cannot remove built-in
tabs, but you can hide them.
To hide a tab, open the Customize the Ribbon page of the Word Options dialog box and
clear the tab’s check box. To remove a command group, select it and click Remove. If
you have created a custom tab of your own, you can remove it in the same way: select it
and click Remove.
