Various toolbars for specific tasks are available which can be docked to main windows or be placed wherever you like. All toolbars can be switched on or off by a right-clicking on any toolbar and tick-marking or clearing a specific toolbar in the pop-up menu. The menu can also be accessed in the main menu under View - Toolbars.
The advantage of docking toolbars to a map window is that the map is not masked by the toolbar and the map window can even be zoomed to maximum size. The same is true for many other dialog boxes, bars and diagrams like the street routing window or the XY diagram. Users who work with a 2 screen PC-configuration can even shift these windows to the other screen and can zoom their map window(s) always to maximum size. Just drag (click and hold) the window with the blue title bar to the other screen and drop it there.
Please note that some icons can be deactivated, if e.g. no suitable map is available or no object is selected. The Roadbook-Editor - icon is only available, if you have purchased the poweruser-ddition. The street - routing - icon is only available, if you have a NAVTEQ Routing-, NAVTEQ Navi-version or QV-Map Telogis.

All toolboxes can be activated or disabled through the view menu by selecting toolbars:

Click on the arrow and choose Add or Remove Buttons, to replace symbols which you do not need and to gain more space on your Desktop. You can define the range of your toolbars like you want. Click on one of the toolbars and hold down the mouse button to change the mouse cursor and to move the toolbar. So you can change e.g. the order of the symbol bars, the toolbars on another edge of the main window (left, right or below) or place freely on the screen.
