Not sure where to put this question so sorry if it is out of place.


I just installed office 2011 on my 2011 vintage macbook pro. I'm an experienced windows office user but first time using the mac version.


I noticed there are two rows of icons in excel. One is the ribbon which also exists in the windows 2007 version & beyond. Then there is another row of icons with items like new worksheet, file save, print, etc.


I'm trying to maximize my screen real estate to show only the cells. I know how to hide the ribbon. But I can't find a way to hide that other row of icons. Even in full screen mode that row of icon shows up. Is there a way to hide them?



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
