To do this:

  1. Navigate to the following registry location:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MacroView\ClauseBank
  2. Locate the following registry keys and change the default value from "0" to "1" for the applications you wish to hide:
    • HideOutlookRibbon (DWORD) value = "0"
    • HidePowerPointRibbon (DWORD) value = "0"
