In PSCS4, we added an Application bar- designed to help you quickly display images in a variety of ways. For example, you can choose to view “Extras” such as Guides, Grids and Rules with the click of a button (no more going through the menus) as well as change Zoom levels by entering a value or by selecting a percentage from the list. The Hand, Zoom and new Rotate View tools are also available as are the Arrange Documents and Screen Views icons (more on those features in a later post). Toggle the Application Bar by choosing Window / Application Bar. Note: the Application Frame must be off to toggle off the Application bar.

If you decide to turn off the Application Frame, the Application Bar can be repositioned by dragging the grabber handle (on the left of the Application Bar) to the bottom of the monitor, a secondary monitor. To save screen real estate, the Application Bar will automatically reduce in size if moved.
