Completely hide the Ribbon menu in Excel

The instructor of this video shows you how to completely hide the ribbon, or the menu, in Excel. If you only want to partially hide the ribbon, you can use the shortcut control + F1. To completely hide the ribbon, though, go to the Visual Basic screen, hit Alt + F11. Then, go to insert, then module, and type in the macro "sub (Your name for macro)" then hit enter, then type in the code "application.executeExcel4macro''show.toolbar(""Ribbon"", false)''". To set up the code to show the ribbon again, you will enter the code "application.executeExcel4macro''show.toolbar(""Ribbon"", true)''" Then save it as a macro enabled workbook. Alt + F8 (open all macros) will be necessary to apply the changes to the ribbon.
