Thanks! My terminalogy was likely not correct. I was refering to the ...
"windows" for applications, which I've been calling "panels" (because
they are within my virtual windows).

The ... task bar(?) works just fine with autohide. As Fred correctly
divined, it was in one of the drop-downs under preferences. But I'll bet
you know the CL for that too. Since I'm an old CLI guy that prefers that
method, I'll be hunting starting from your hint.


Thanks for taking the time! It helps a lot.
