I know F11 un-hides the navigation pane.  F11 again collapses the pane.  But is there a way to TOTALLY hide the pane, not just collapse it with a hotkey?

Under File/Options/Current Database is an option to hide it permanently.  Unfortunately, certain fairly common actions such as importing/exporting a spreadsheet will pop it open again and even though I have found code that purports to tuck it away again, I can't get it to work.  Best case is it is reduced to a vertical bar.  The solution that works best is renaming the database to .accdr.  That tells Access to pretend to be the runtime engine.  Since the runtime doesn't allow design view, it doesn't allow the nav pain (sic) to pop open.  Of course, you also loose the right-click menus and you need to be very careful about error trapping or the users will be summarily dumped out of the app on unhandled errors.
