I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 and would like to try out the new Heads-up Display (HUD) interface.

How do I make it show up?


By default to invoke the HUD you should tap the Alt button.


Press and hold the Windows key to bring up a list of keyboard shortcuts.

  • This only works on certain size screens, for instance on a netbook you do not get the list - only the Unity dash with numbers over the launchers. – Mark Rooney May 4 '12 at 22:35
