TOGGLE THE WEB PAGE TOOLBAR OFF AND ON 
Q:
This may seem like a minor problem, but it’s very irritating. When I’m examining a Web page, the special toolbars at the top of my screen (such as EarthLink’s and Google’s) not only take up a chunk of real estate, they are a visual distraction. On the other hand, I want those tools to be readily available when I need them. Is there some way to sort of have my cake and eat it?

A: By pressing F11 you can toggle those toolbars on and off. It’s that easy.

Now you see it…

…now you don’t.
