Default 'Full screen' mode in Word that maintains the window size, but el.

I like full screen mode, but the same idea would be cool if I could have it
just eliminate everything except the text area (menu, toolbars, status bar,
etc.) BUT keep the window size that I am currently working in. Handy when
writing documentation for software that is running in another window and I
want to maximize my 'input area' but not go full screen.

Hi ?B?RGFuIFN1bGxpdmFu?=,

I like full screen mode, but the same idea would be cool if I could have it
just eliminate everything except the text area (menu, toolbars, status bar,
etc.) BUT keep the window size that I am currently working in. Handy when
writing documentation for software that is running in another window and I
want to maximize my 'input area' but not go full screen.

In that case, you could perhaps use a macro that hides the status bar and
loops through the toolbars collection and sets all toolbars' .Visible property
to false. You'd need another macro to turn the toolbars back on, of course.
Here's a framework to get you going:

Sub MyFullScreenMode()
Dim cb as CommandBar

Set CustomizationContext = ActiveDocument
For each cb in CommandBars
cb.Visible = False
Next
Application.DisplayStatusBar = false

End Sub
