How do I get rid of the fine white amplitude scale in Audacity?

In Audacity 2.0.0 (audio editor), I've accidentally created a vertical
white-cum-grey-coloured scale immediately next to, and to the right of, the
amplitude scale (+1 0 -1). It's a fine graduated scale.

Also at the same time I seem to have created a horizontal grey band above and
below the waveform, that also partially overlaps the waveform. The above
features now appear with every waveform. They weren't there before.

I've a feeling that I created the above things when I pressed a keyboard
combination that I didn't mean to.

My best guess is that I was pressing something like one of the following keys,
but I can't be sure:


The white scale and grey bands are still there after exiting and re-opening
Audacity. I've tried, but I can't find a reference to what creates or removes
these features, or what they're for.

I'd like to remove them without re-installing Audacity. Please does anyone know
how to get rid of them, because they're driving me nuts.

I would be interested to know what these features are for, but don't worry if
you don't know.

Resetting Audacity to defaults : Delete the file audacity.cfg

I.e. /home/<name>/.audacity-data/audacity.cfg
