In Simplified mode (RibbonControl.AllowSimplifiedRibbon is true), the Minimize button switches between Classic and Simplified ribbon layout; otherwise it minimizes/expands the contents of the Ribbon Control`s pages.

When the MinimizationButtonVisibility is Auto, the Minimize button is visible in each RibbonStyle except the Office 2007 style.

When the MinimizationButtonVisibility is Auto and the RibbonControl.AllowSimplifiedRibbon is True, the MinimizationButton is visible regardless of the current ribbon style.

Use the RibbonControl.IsMinimizationButtonVisible property to get the actual visibility state of the Minimize button.
