hello!

  You can customize VC user interface to avoid hassle.

for example ,you can add/remove some shortcuts to customize your tool bars.

Good luck !

I am assuming that you want to control the attributes of the main frame window in a MFC application. the easiest way to do that is to overide the
FrameWnd::PreCreateWindow with your own and set the style and size
using the cs structure.

      cs.style = WS_OVERLAPPED | WS_CAPTION & ~FWS_ADDTOTITLE
            | FWS_PREFIXTITLE | WS_THICKFRAME | WS_SYSMENU
            | WS_MAXIMIZE & ~WS_VISIBLE;

    // Size the window to full screen size
    cs.cy = ::GetSystemMetrics( SM_CYSCREEN );
    cs.cx = ::GetSystemMetrics( SM_CXSCREEN );
    cs.y = 0;
    cs.x = 0;
