The formula bar is the area at the top of the Sheets screen, just below the toolbar and just above the spreadsheet itself. The formula bar displays the contents of the currently selected cell. If you need more room to view a spreadsheet, or you don't need the information provided by the formula bar, you can turn it off.
To control display of the formula bar, simply choose View | Formula Bar. This option is a toggle; repeatedly selecting it turns the formula bar on and off. You can tell if the formula bar is displayed by (of course) seeing the formula bar on the screen, but you can also see a check mark beside the Formula Bar option on the View menu.
