You can set the "size" in the com.canonical.Unity scheme, form-factor key with the gsettings command.

1) If you want the dash "Half Screen"...

Open a Terminal and type:

  • gsettings set com.canonical.Unity form-factor 'Desktop'

enter image description here

2) If you want the dash "Full Screen"...

The Terminal command would be:

  • gsettings set com.canonical.Unity form-factor 'Netbook'

enter image description here

Note: You can also set the form-factor in Automatic

Hope this helps.

This has been tested on 13.10

I don't know if you can do it from terminal, but, you can resize the dash as shown in the images below. Just click on the little circled rectangle, and you should be able to resize it to full window, and it will stay the same even after shutdown and restart.

Note: Keep in mind that this might change once the official release is out.
