Situation

Cannot right-click on a Toolbar to hide the Toolbar or bring up Toolbar setup like was available in Reflection 14. 

Resolution

If using Reflection Desktop 16.0:

If using Reflection Desktop 16.1:
        Upgrade to Reflection Desktop 16.1 SP1 or higher

In these updated versions of Reflection Desktop, options have been added to allow a  right-click on a Toolbar and the Toolbar panel.  The “Toolbar Setup” option opens a toolbar selection dialog and it is handy to be able to enter the Reflection UI Designer from this location. The "Hide Toolbar" can be used to make a toolbar invisible.  If a floating toolbar is is selected, the hide toolbar option will hide the toolbar.  If the toolbar strip panel is selected, the hide toolbar option will hide the toolbar on the left of new the context menu.  If there are no toolbars to the left of the context menu then the hide toolbar option is disabled.  The feature to hide toolbars is not available to the extended toolbar box, which is displayed by down-arrow at the end of toolbar strip.

A HotFix (HF) for Reflection Desktop is a cumulatively built product update, intended for limited distribution, which addresses specific customer issues and enhancement requests; outside the regular Development release cycle. It is only available to Micro Focus customers with current software support and maintenance contracts, and only after contacting Micro Focus Customer Support directly.  A HotFix undergoes limited stability and quality testing and is intended for quick release to address specific product issues and should not be deployed to production environments without thorough testing.  It is recommended to upgrade to a full-release or a Service Pack version of Reflection Desktop when it becomes available.
