How can I configure Unity's launcher auto-hide behavior?

I have an Acer Aspire ONE Netbook and now having just upgraded to 12.04 the DASH program - that has always irritated me by keep popping up when I use spreadsheets and other documents that need the pointer to move close to the left edge of the screen causing the wretched Icons from DASH to pop up - is now PERMANENTLY down the side of my left hand side and as a result my internet pages all need scrolling to the right to get see the 1/4 inch pinched by DASH. How can I get my screen back to full view and DASH at least in 'pop up' status again. If I am stuck with this then I will reformat my hard disk and either go back to UBUNTU version 9 which was much quicker starting and simpler to use or look for another Linux provider.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


I think you are asking about the Launcher - the bar on the left hand side. The default is 'Always show'. You can change to 'Hide' in system settings->appearance->behaviour.
