Save Screen Space by Hiding the Bookmarks Toolbar in Safari for Windows

I’m not a toolbar fan, especially if the bar takes up my viewing space, so I always try and find the most minimal setup possible.

By default Apple’s Safari browser includes a bookmarks toolbar with links to Apple, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, and various news sites.  You can also place new bookmark pages on this bar. 


To hiding this menu is simple, just open Apple’s Safari web browser and click on View, and select Hide Bookmarks Bar.


That’s it!  You now have more room to view your favorite web pages.

    Thanks. This also works on Mac OS X’s Safari.

    Is there an addon for Safari that allows a multiple row tool bar?
