If you are logged in as the admin of your site, you will see a gray bar at the top of your screen. This is called the admin bar and is only visible to anyone who is logged in. The admin bar provides various options and easy access to your site.
When logged in as admin, the admin bar will have the following items: a WordPress icon that contains information about WordPress along with support and contact forms, your site’s name followed by links to your dashboard, theme, theme customization, widgets, menus, background settings and header settings.
This icon lets you monitor your comments. That Add New icon lets you create new posts, media, pages and users. On the right end of the admin bar is your profile name and avatar icon. This gives you the options of editing your profile and logging out. Lastly, there will be a search icon that when clicked on allows you to do searches of any post or page on your site.
