Toolbar

The Toolbar is an area of the screen just above the site that lists useful admininstration screen links such as add a new post or edit your profile. The Toolbar concept was added to WordPress in Version 3.1 as Admin Bar and in Version 3.3 it was replaced by the Toolbar.

The Toolbar contains links to information about WordPress, as well as quick-links to create new posts, pages and links, add new plugins and users, review comments, and alerts to available updates to plugins and themes on your site.

The toolbar can be turned on/off from the Administration > Users > Your Profile, but It is no longer possible to hide the Toolbar when viewing the Administration Screens.
