Adobe Illustrator - Get An Uncluttered View (Illustrator 9/10/CS)
Sometimes when you're working on an illustration, you'll find that all the floating palettes and the Toolbox seem to get in your way. For times when you need an uncluttered view of your artwork, just press the [tab] key. All of your palettes and the Toolbox will be out of your way. Pressing the [tab] key once again will return them to view. If you want only the palettes hidden, press [shift][tab] instead. This hides all the palettes except for the Toolbox, so you can still keep working.
