    How to hide top menu bar in 12.04

    It's there, staring me in the face, refusing to relinquish space to my small display. I HATE IT!!!

    I want it to hide except when I want it to show (autohide).

    HOW can I do this?

    In the gnome-shell you can have a autohide, with unity I have not seen any. You can make it transparent though.

    The auto-hide of the Unity launcher is switched off by default in 12.04. To switch it on go to ‘Control Gear –> System Settings’ then 'Appearance –> Behaviour' and set the auto-hide to on.

    OP is talking about the top menu bar and not the App laucher on left side..

    Vote for my Idea

    I also hated the top bar and switched to KDE...

    The "behavior" setting mentioned applies to the Launcher, not the TOP bar, which I think is called the Menu Bar? Anyway, it's the top one, that has the gear on the top right corner within it. That's the one I want to autohide. I found the setting for the Launcher long ago, but I need a similar solution for the top bar.

    Thanks!

    No. It simply cannot be hidden.

    I followed the directions to 'dim' my top task bar; fun and I enjoy it.
    Enjoyed the tip.
