How can I add or remove the menubar or toolbar from a figure in MATLAB?
I want to control whether the menubar and toolbar appear in a figure. Can I turn them on or off?

You can use SET command to change the MenuBar and Toolbar properties of the figure to control whether the menubar and toolbar are shown in a MATLAB figure.
The possible values for Menu Bar are:
'none' - the menubar is not shown
'figure' - the menubar is shown
The possible values for ToolBar are:
'none' - the toolbar is not shown
'auto' - the toolbar is controlled by the menubar. If MenuBar is set to 'figure', then the toolbar is shown. If 'MenuBar is set to 'none', then the toolbar isn't shown.
'figure' - the toolbar is shown
For example, the following code will open a figure without the menubar and toolbar:
hFigure = figure;
set(hFigure, 'MenuBar', 'none');
set(hFigure, 'ToolBar', 'none');

Even with the instructions, there is still a white bar at the top of the figure, like in screnshot below. (The rest of the figure in the screenshot is black).
How can I get rid of this white bar? What is it called if it's not the Menu Bar or Tool Bar? I don't see any other kinds of "bars" listed in figure properties.

The description of the 'fullscreen' value for the figure property WindowState doesn't give that bar a name; it just says "the minimize, restore, and close buttons provided by the operating system". So maybe we could call it the "system controls bar"?
