google chrome – How to hide the bookmark bar? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/20

So I wondered why on some tabs, the bookmark bar would never disappear:

Chrome’s default new tab page (NTP) always shows a bookmark bar, even if you turn it off for other pages. You can however install browser extensions which replace the NTP, and the replacements do not automatically get the bookmarks bar (but can with some extra programming).

So for instance Google’s Earth View extension does not show bookmarks, whereas Pinterest’s now does.
