Get rid of the coloured bar at the bottom
On Word 2016, because I want to focus on the text and not be distracted, I switched to so-called Classic view, so as not to have that annoying blue bar at the top of the document. But, the annoying, distracting blue bar is still at the bottom of the document (there where things like the live word count should be).
Can't you give us the option of getting rid of that too, so it's easier and more pleasant to work? Although, I won't be seeing it too much as I'm going straight back to Office for Mac 2011, for as long as that's still usable.

The lack of a live word count has driven me back to Office 2011 after trying 2016.
