Manually hiding the CRM 2011 Ribbon

Some may call me Captain Obvious, but sometimes it is the obvious that passes us by.

As is today’s Dynamics CRM 2011 topic: Did you know you can hide the ribbon on the main Application or an Entity Form?  Well you can.

In the upper-right corner of the window, beside the Organization Name, is a small arrow:

Clicking that arrow will show or hide the ribbon, leaving only the tab names showing.

This is not a permanent change, just for the current session or form.

Not a huge deal, but handy if you’re trying to recover some screen real estate.
