LisaQC, hi and welcome to HTG.
Press the CTRL key and the F1 key.
This is the toggle.
Same for all MS progs, Excel, PowerPoint etc

LOL!
Just a point to note, if you close Word with the ribbon disabled, it will reopen disabled. But a useful feature if you want 'real estate' back.

I like Mike's solution.

Also, there is a small arrow to the right of where the the missing ribbon should be ... (look next to the Help ? Icon). That (toggle) brings mine into view.

The link is to this thread. Fixed it, but it makes no difference.

@LisaQC: What makes no sense? If you are talking about Office 2010 and the ribbon, which is where the icons are, then the methods above must work.
