Hi there,

if you click on the menu to show the ribbon, in the right bottom corner of the ribbon there appears a pin-button to pin the ribbon to the interface.
The same happens when you double-click the menu; it toggles the pin/hide ribbon function. There's also a short-key: Ctrl+F1.

Hope this solves it for you.

Jazzy,

I do not see the pin....

I see the up and down  triangle to hid or display.    is that what you are referring to?

Actually, I checked my version and I am using 2013.

If the ribbon is pinned, there appears a triangle/arrow which hides the ribbon.
If the ribbon is hidden, with the 'pin' icon you can pin the ribbon.

So, probably the up and down triangle in 2010 have the same functionality.

Double clicking the menu tabs works since version 2007 though.

Try renaming the olkexplorer file at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office then restart outlook.
