Ubuntu Precise Update Removes Giant Shortcuts from Dash

We previously mentioned that the ‘Giant Shortcuts’ in Unity’s Dash were being given the ol’ heave-ho in Ubuntu 12.04.

That update has now landed in the Unity PPA ahead of its push to Ubuntu 12.04.


Pressing the Ubuntu button (also known as the ‘bfb’) opens the Dash on a new look Home lens that, at present, displays recent apps that aren’t attached to the Launcher.

The full intention is display an overview of recent user activity under the headings “Recent Apps” (which won’t feature those apps locked to the Launcher), “Recent Files”, and “Downloads” – as can be seen in the image below.
