CTRL + SHIFT + U done twice.

I thought it was just CTRL + U or has that changed since beta

EDIT: Someone got there before me

It is indeed simply CTRL+U at the same time, twice. Once turns the UI off (For screen capping or theatrics of some kind) and a second time to turn it back on (which of course reloads it what we are after)

Ctrl-U takes a few seconds to reload the screen. If the screen is on normally, then hitting Ctrl-U will turn it off. Then hitting Ctrl-U again will turn it back on after a few seconds.

If the screen is already off, then hitting Ctrl-U will start to turn it back on, but if you hit Ctrl-U again, too soon, you'll turn it off again before it can actually come on.

If you just want to "hide" the UI, for screenshots or whatever, you can use ALT+Z. And then ALT+Z again to "show" it again. Unlike using CTRL+U, this doesn't completely unload the UI, so it will come back pretty much immediately.

And if your UI is "missing" and CTRL+U doesn't bring it back, it may be you accidentally hit ALT+Z and "hid" it, and need to hit ALT+Z again to bring it back.
