How can I get rid of an unused (blank) toolbar at the top of my page?

Posted

I have a fully blank toolbar area at the top of my page, which takes away from the space on my screen? Is there a way to close it?

You can select which toolbars to show or hide here: View > Toolbars

Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily.
