Yes Cindy, you are almost there. Do you see just above that circled area in your screenshot, there is a Tool Options? That is just supposed to be docked. Double-click on it and it should dock. The Tool Options toolbar will change depending on the tool that is active. In your screenshot, it is the Pan tool. Notice that if you select another tool on the left, it will have different settings. That is normal.
If you go to View > Toolbar, you probably still have some options checked that you should UNcheck, like the Effect, Photo and Web. UNcheck those and you will have more room for the “useful” commands and settings.
