  • It consumes a large area of the screen,
  • The commands are not in logical groups, and
  • Some commonly used commands, such as the Manual Page Break, are not on it at all.

It is often better to hide the Ribbon Toolbar, display the Quick Access Toolbar below the Ribbon Toolbar and import the Eastwood Harris Quick Access Toolbar which has the commonly used commands grouped into logical groups.
