Reduce the size of the 'Ribbon' on top so that there is more space for typing
I want to use split screen and the size detracts significantly from my ability to do so. I want some of my common buttons available, but there are many things I do not need. It seems really hard to customize for what I actually use. Ribbon should be about 1/2 the size. There is also no need for a HUGE buttons of any kind (for example paste, print, styles). Things I use often and do not need a full inch size button on the ribbon for.
Yes. On a 10" screen it's really impractical having that much screen space taken up by the ribbon. Even better would be the option to go full-screen entirely and only bring up the ribbon/options on command. On smaller mobile screens, a full-screen option seems like a no-brainer.
