I want to disable the default status bar on tmux. I prefer to treat screen/tmux as persistant session managers, and deprecate the menu/window stuff in favor of my system window manager. I suspect Tmux could be better for this role than screen.

And if that's possible, can I do it at runtime with a chord?

set -g status off

You can enter it with Prefix (Ctrl+b by default) :set ..., or from shell with tmux set ..., or bind a key with bind-key x set ....

I would only add to you answer the detail that to enter a command you don't have to press "Ctrl + Prefix", but only "Prefix". Prefix is the whole key combination that has to be followed by ":". By the way, to some "prefix" doesn't even include the CTRL key at all (for instance, my prefix is Alt-e). –  Dakatine Jun 25 '12 at 8:43

+1. @grawity is there a way to enable the status bar automatically when there are multiple tabs? –  Yang Jul 23 '13 at 15:36
