I Was Wondering If There Was Means Or A Way To Resize The Dash Window In Ubuntu v. 11.10 64-Bit Where The Dash Is A Feature In The Newer Unity GUI?

Hello. I have a question to ask you. I am using Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit operating system.

I was wondering if there was means or a way to resize the Dash window screen in Ubuntu where the Dash is a feature in the newer Unity GUI? The Dash is an icon click activated, non-maximized window placed in the upper left corner of the Ubuntu desktop that has a semi-transparent grayed-out background. The dash has the function to search for other applications and programs and to easily access your shortcuts – part of the newer Unity GUI for Linux Ubuntu. Please see the attached screenshot for further clarity for a sample image of the Dash.  

I know there are several user customizable programs that can change specific features and functions with Ubuntu like MyUnity Configuration Tool, Compiz-Config Settings Manager (CCSM), Ubuntu Tweak, and GNOME Tweak Tool to new a few. I am not sure if any of these particular programs is useful here since I am have been looking around and I have yet to see any customizable features for the Dash.

Please explain how to resize the Dash in Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit operating system?

Please reply.

Thank you!

Hi!

"There are many unconfigurable parts of Unity, and this is one of them. The Dash has two modes (fullscreen and windowed) and you can switch between them using the icons in the upper left of the dash (see link below). You can't drag-resize the Dash."

Hello. Nice to meet you.

Thank you for your comment. Yes, I do believe your comment when accompanied with supporting documentation. I see the Ubuntu 2D GUI version is customizable where the "standard" version of the Ubuntu GUI is not.

It is not the answer I wanted to hear, but now I will always know.

Thank you for your help!!!
