WORD 2013 - Keeping ribbon (per HOME tab) on top of screen

Hello,

In my Word 2013, the default "tab" (for lack of better terminology) seems to be FILE rather than HOME (which displays the very useful ribbon). I find this behavior to be unfortunate. For example, I was trying to compare the fonts in two different lines on my document by looking at the display on the ribbon, but because Word kept defaulting back to FILE, I'd have to go back to HOME to do what I need to do.

Is there a way to default the tab to HOME so I always see the ribbon unless I give Word a command that tells it otherwise?

Thanks,
Steve

Why don't you use "Reveal Formatting" to show the fonts etc.? Press Shift and F1 to get the pane in the right of your window.

@Emmanuel - Thank did it.  That was easy! :)

@Phillip: Very nice. I'll keep it in mind for the future.

I gave the primary points etc. to Emmanuel as my question included displaying the ribbon all the time.

Thank you both!
