In situations where you want to concentrate on the text and other items in your document, it is great to be able to clear all the visual clutter from the screen ( toolbars , scrollbars, and other Word tools) and view only your document. For example, you might be proofreading a particular page and want to place as much of the page's text on the screen as you can. You can switch to a view where your document occupies all the space available on the screen. Select View , Full Screen .
You can still add or edit the text in your document when you are in the Full Screen view. You can also quickly return to the previous view you were using (such as Normal view or Print Layout view) before you switched to the Full Screen view. Click the Close Full Screen box that appears in the document window and you return to the previous view.
