    Remove Sign In from the Word 2016 ribbon

    Is there a way to remove the "sign in" and "share" labels/items from the Word 2016 ribbon? If I ever use them I will be surprised, and they take up valuable ribbon real estate.

    Regards,

    Is it different to Word 2013 where you just right click on the ribbon and select customise?

    Word 2013 does not let you remove this either. It is not in the Ribbon, itself. I suspect, as in Word 2013, if you Autohide the Ribbon, it will hide these as well. However, you seem to want the Ribbon, so, nope. It may be possible with an XML modification, but I do not know that it is.

    Charles, as I get more familiar with the "new Word", maybe I'll not be so persnickety. I don't necessarily want the ribbon, but at the same time MS diminished the number of icons that could be placed on the Quick Access toolbar, I am having to re-learn my working methods and environments. I'm still toying with the idea of setting up custom ribbon tabs so that I can combine related commands in tabs that are placed on the QA bar.

    We'll see.

    Autohide also hides the QAT and the Status Bar.

    That does increase focus on the task at hand. One thing I just noticed: the ^F1 to minimize the ribbon doesn't seem to work if auto-hide is activated. Is there a key-combo that could be used to activate (or not) auto-hide?

    Regards,

    I'm confident that keyboard shortcut could be made if one knew which command it is. This one knows not. I have looked. If you happen to find out, please let me know. It should be something like RibbonAutoHide or ToggleRibbonAutoHide.

    It may not exist.
    I did post a question about it on the Customizing Office forum.

    I know an individual user could do a version of it using a keyboard macro program, such as http://www.asutype.com/ , but I wonder if there is a way within Office? Should be, I would think.

    It will be interesting to see...
