Windows 7: What is the name of the toolbar under the menu bar?

What is the name of the toolbar under the menu bar?

And can it be disabled?

It was introduced in Vista... has buttons like Organize, Burn, New Folder (new to 7 I think).

It's pointless... I use none of those buttons. Can I remove it?

If you hide this (If possible) then you can't change the folder LOOK as in List, Large icons, small icons, contents, details, tiles, etc.
I like changing these settings depending on what's in the folder & with that bar gone so are these settings options.

in Windows XP you can hide "common tasks" without removing the toolbar button you speak of. I think it should be the same in Windows 7 but I am not using it atm so I can't say for sure.

The bar that says Organize/Views/Share/Burn was never in XP as far as I knew, unless you had to manually turn it on. XP had, from top down:

Menubar: File, edit, view, etc.
Nav bar: Back and forward buttons, etc
Address bar

Now Vista/7 has:

Navbar / Address bar combined
Menubar: Automatically hidden but you can see it by tapping alt
New bar which is huge and obtrusive and not very useful - it's twice as thick as the damn menubar

Some (but probably not all) of those things can be done through the (hidden) normal menubar.
