Disable the status bar in tmux

tmux

I want to disable the default status bar on tmux. I prefer to treat screen/tmux as persistant session managers, and deprecate the menu/window stuff in favor of my system window manager. I suspect Tmux could be better for this role than screen.

And if that's possible, can I do it at runtime with a chord?

set -g status off

You can enter it with Prefix (Ctrl+b by default) :set ..., or from shell with tmux set ..., or bind a key with bind-key x set ....
