Windows 7: Cannot revert to Full ribbon in word 2007

09 Jun 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601) 64-bit ready
Cannot revert to Full ribbon in word 2007

Please I am asking for assistance.
I don't know how to revert to the "Full ribbon" in Word Office 2007.
I have no idea how or why the full ribbon vanished.
The small ribbon is not at all what I am used to and it is too cumbersome for me.
Clicking control F1 did not help.
I am not computer literate so please I ask for step-by-step instructions.
