    Just double click on any tab. The Ribbon will go away and you will be able to see 4 additional rows in your worksheet.

    When you need the ribbon, click on any tab and it will temporarily return with the 4 top rows hiding behind the ribbon.

    Double click on a tab and the ribbon returns with the 4 rows moving down, as it appeared originally.

    P.S:I am using 2007 version.

    Hi Riya,

    Taking the help of a mouse to do an activity might be convenient but not time saving. Hence I always recommend to opt the TAT saving technique. So better to go for a keyboard shortcut

    CTRL+F1 : To hide or unhide Ribbon menu
