Use focus view
|Note If you are using Office 2011 (version 14.1 or earlier) focus view is called full screen view. For more information about the full screen view in Mac OS X 7 (Lion), see Reduce screen clutter for easier document viewing.|
If you open a document primarily to read it, focus view optimizes the reading experience. Focus view hides all toolbars except for toolbars that control reading and writing. If you want to edit the document, you can switch to writing mode while in focus view. Writing mode is optimized for writing and includes only the most frequently used writing tools.
Do any of the following:
Switch between reading and writing mode
|Tip To exit full screen view, point your mouse to the top of the screen, and then click Exit.|
