Discover how AppDynamics steps in to upgrade your performance game and prevent your enterprise from these top 10 Java performance problems, brought to you in partnership with AppDynamics.

Screen real estate is important to me. Especially working on a small notebook screen I want to get the most out of it. And I know: all the cool (and fancy) UI items in Eclipse have a price.

So how to get more space for important things like my source files? Eclipse has feature to hide the toolbar completely. For this I simply use the context menu and select ‘Hide Toolbar’:

Hide Toolbar

Hide Toolbar

While this is great, there is one little problem: how to get it back? Obviously there is no toolbar any more where I could use a context menu like ‘Show Toolbar’ :-( .

The solution: there is a menu item for this under Window > Show Toolbar:

Show Toolbar Menu

Show Toolbar Menu

Happy Toolbaring :-)
