Is there a way to get rid of this tool/icon bar in Emacs GUI under OSX?

I don't use OSX so the details might be different for your machine but on my Linux I have two options.

  1. The GUI way:

    enter image description here

    This is not persistent across sessions though, next time you open emacs, the bar will be back.

  2. The emacs way; just add this line to your $HOME/.emacs file:

    (tool-bar-mode -1)

    Now, every time you open emacs the bar will appear briefly but will be gone by the time emacs has finished initializing and is ready for use. I have previously tried to get this to work better, without having the bar appear at all, for the menu-bar but could not find a better way.
