In a previous post I had mentioned about the Read Mode available within Microsoft Word. Post which you can read here. What did Read Mode do? Utilities such as the toolbar, the ribbon and the scrollbars disappear from view unless we need them. Now we have available the Focus Mode. By using it, it enhances our Document viewing experience by hiding all the toolbars, removes all the distractions and it allows us to concentrate and focus on the content of our Document.
