Hey Guys, me again. Is it possible to delete the header of a figure. by header I mean the area where the name of the figure and the cross the close the figure are. I just want a empty figure....without anything. I use 'MenuBar', 'None' to delete the menuBar but its not empty enough.

if u type in the command window:
figure('MenuBar', 'None')
you will get an empty figure. But it still has the minimize button, the maximize button and the close button in the top right corner. Also it show the name next to these buttons. Now i want all of it to disappear.

I don't think you can have a figure without the title bar. It's pretty much a common part of any application window in Windows, nevermind just a Matlab figure.
You can get rid of the default figure number with:
figure('MenuBar', 'None', 'NumberTitle', 'off')
but you still get the title bar with minimize, maximize etc.

Got the same problem and fixed it by editing 'WindowState' to fullscreen after removing the menu bar. It's does a similar effect to pressing F11 in Chrome and other programs and pressing 'Esc' afterwards exits fullscreen mode and reverts 'WidowState' back to normal.
fig = figure('MenuBar','none');
fig.WindowState = 'fullscreen';
