Mathematica has written nice Documentation about shortening the output and its options.
In general change $OutputSizeLimit to increase the limit Mathematica shorten the output.
For specific cases, use InputForm.
but be aware in both cases you will have performance penalties.
Beside Mathematica built-in Palettes which are basically floating window, you can access with Palettes option in Menu Bar, there are also some built-in toolbar in Window > Toolbar which will be shown below menu bar just like the picture you mentioned.
If you want to create your own floating Palette, follow this Tutorial on Wolfram.

After reading everyone's comments here, I still can't see why the kernel does not have a hardware watchdog timer that interrupts once/second to check for an Abort signal. It would slow everything down by 0.00001%; so what?
Anyway, here is my workaround: inside your deepest ...
