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 :-)
