# How do I remove the top bar and bottom bar from the Mathematica window?

Any idea how to remove the top bar saying

"Wolfram Mathematica .... Demonstrations MathWorld Studenforum Help"

from the Mathematica main window (see screenshot). It has no use to me and it steals real estate from my laptop sreen.

Also: How do I remove the bottom bar with the zoom button?

Appreciate any help!

You can upload images to an upload server. Post the link here and we'll include the image in the question. –  stevenvh Aug 15 '12 at 18:20
I think that's part of the student version. When I upgraded to the full license, it disappeared. There was a very brief discussion about this over at the Student Support Forum, and the official line is that you can't remove it. –  programming_historian Aug 15 '12 at 18:20

SetOptions[InputNotebook[], "DockedCells" -> None]

The structure of notebooks in the student version is the same as the full version, but I'm not sure how to automatically remove them for all new notebooks, shouldn't be too hard –  M.R. Aug 15 '12 at 18:45
Nice...if that could be automatically... –  n3rd Aug 15 '12 at 19:01
try to put in an init.m file, but careful this may interfere with slide mode that has docked cells. –  user21 Aug 15 '12 at 21:14
Looks like this method doesn't work for Mathematica 9 for Students, any ideas on a fix? –  DumpsterDoofus Jan 6 at 2:20
