I am using Arc Menu on Dash to Panel and the Show applications button is sitting there doing nothing. Since it is wasting space, I want to remove it.

Desktop with Dash to Panel

I have tried almost everything, like hiding it from Dash to Dock, but with Dash to Panel it's not working.

Here is the way I found how to remove it with Dash to Dock:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock show-show-apps-button false

I changed the above command as follows to make it work with Dash to Panel:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-panel show-show-apps-button false

But it still doesn't work.

Please tell me how to hide that Show Applications button.


right-click on the Dash to Panel dock → Dash to Panel Settings and in the Position tab click the Visible button next to the Show Applications button entry.
