The dash in Ubuntu 11.10 should display on the right side a filter function which I can't see. I am using a netbook with the usual 10" screen with a 1024x600 resolution. Any idea how to reduce the icon size to be able to see the filter function area?

The filter function only works on the 'Search Applications' 'Search Files & Folders and 'Search Music Collection'

These are accessed on the bottom of the open Dash via the icons.
