Another way to Collapse the Ribbon automatically, is to select the File tab, to move to Backstage View and then from the drop-down menu at the left we select the command Options. Once the Options command is selected the Word Options dialog box appears, where we select the General tab at the left and then under the category User Interface Options we activate the check box next to the command Collapse The Ribbon Automatically. We then press the Ok button located at the bottom right corner of the Word Options dialog box, for the changes to be applied.
