I created a view for my document library with toolbar type "show toolbar". This gives the desired result, but also shows a 'inner toolbar' within the view. How to hide/remove this toolbar?

    That is the View Selector and displays 3 of the available views. You could hide it with JavaScript; there is no OOTB setting to hide it. Dec 29, 2015 at 14:06
  • Agree with Danny , if you want to hide you can use CSS to hide it . .ms-pivotControl-container { display:none; } Dec 29, 2015 at 14:08
  • @BhaskarDhone thank. I added the css to my master page unfortunately without any result.

You can hide this inner toolbar with the miscellaneous settings of the web part:

  • Check: Disable view selector menu
  • Check: Disable 'save this view' button
  • Uncheck: Display search box
