Right click on the Library - e.g. Documents (in the left pane) > go to Properties. There you can delete it (highlight it and then "Remove" - do not forget Apply !!!).

1. Organize->Layout->Menu bar to add the menu bar at the top.
2. View->Group by->(none) to remove the grouping

I you don't want the menu bar do step 1 again to remove it.

You want this header to distinguish between the different libraries. I have 3 in most cases and could not tell them apart without the header.

I think the default for the documents library is to have the grouping by path but for the other libraries to have no grouping. It's your choice of what works best for you. I must admit that I have changed so often with the documents library I can't remember exactly.
