I find the title bar a bit annoying when using the mouse in Internet Explorer. Many website have their navigation at the top, after all.

    No; There is no way to disable the title bar at this time on Modern UI applications; You could in theory make Windows think you have a touch screen, if you do that, it won't be shown. – Ramhound Apr 18 '14 at 14:53

You could press the SHIFT key to hide the title bar once it appeared to lower this annoying.

You can use ModernMix's setting (under Advanced) "Hide Windows 8.1 Update 1 fullscreen app titlebar".

Side effects to installing ModernMix:

  • By default, ModernMix makes some other tweaks related to running Metro apps in Desktop windows, which you can change in General

  • App previews in the Win + Tab sidebar seem worse (totally black, etc.)

  • Switching apps through Win + Tab doesn't have animations

ModernMix has a (free) 30-day evaluation trial and costs $5 for unlimited use.

  • Welcome to SuperUser. ModernMix is commercial ($4.99), and this should be clearly stated in the answer. – harrymc Jun 7 '14 at 17:36

You can use AutoHotKey and script:

LWIN & LButton::
WinSet, Style, -0xC00000, A

LWIN & RButton::
WinSet, Style, +0xC00000, A

Please consult this post for more info, there has been a question like this one

    This script has nothing to do with the modern ui title bar and would not work. – Ramhound Apr 23 '14 at 13:02
