How to hide that captain guy?

Does anyone know how to get rid of that commander thingy?
I'd like to hide it completely so it doesn't show in the side bar.

Short of disabling the tool window bars entirely, there's no way of getting rid of the Commander button. I will say that, while it took a little getting used to, disabling the tool window bars is the way to go. You'll be surprised how little usability they add for the screen space they take up.

haven't tried this, but if you edit your project.iws file and remove the bit like:

it might disappear... might be worth a go.

Or it will start throwing exceptions because the commander bar does not
exist. The poor guy will file reports to tracker.

Not a good idea.

My financial situation is none of your business. Unless you want to
improve it.

I never tried this before, but now that I have, I like it.

The one thing I think would really make this mode better is if they streamlined all the tabs from all sides into one row to the right of either the main menu or the toolbar. With my resolution, anyway, I have plenty of real estate in both of these areas. At the very least, consolidating them all on one row would be a vast improvement over the current wastage. This way you could still use the mouse if you like, and people who do not already have the numbers memorized could see the shortcuts.
