This can be Done from “View” → “Display Size”. For now this is avaialble for windows only.

Rae, the custom tool panel, like all other existing panels, adds an extra bar which leaves less space for viewing the document. So maybe it helps with not having to switch between many different tools if you customize it well, but it doesn't address the bigger issue of wasted space on the top bar, i.e. large permanent buttons, no ability to rearrange buttons for page navigation, etc. The only portion that allows rearranging of buttons is the Quick tools which always sits on the right side, so that doesn't help especially when viewing DC in half screen.
Besides the stiff and clumsy feel of the bars, they waste vertical space within the bar. If you look at the MS word ribbon and the size of the buttons, you can fit at least two of those buttons for one DC button vertically. Overall the DC menus look and feel like they were made for kids or seniors, not for professionals who need efficiency and productivity.
Also, the menus are not as responsive as other programs. Pressing buttons feels sluggish.
I certainly wouldn't mind having the dockable menus of Photoshop/Illustrator as suggested.
