Most likely using a tk command like [pack forget .x%x.whatever] or 
[destroy .x%x.whatever]. Most likely [pack forget], because then the 
scrollbar still exists, so that things that are interacting with the 
scrollbar don't get an error trying to interact with a dead object.

The menu bar is a special thing. ten years ago, people were using normal 
tk widgets and layouts to make a menu bar. However, to integrate better 
with the Mac, the [pack forget .x%x.whatever] command can't be used, as 
the layout is handled by the window itself; therefore it has to be done 
using [.x%x configure -menubar something].
