Deskbar taking up too much space? Try grabbing the “grippy dots” at the edge of the Deskbar’s tray and dragging upwards. The Deskbar will be compacted into a very small square. You can still access your running apps by clicking the Registrar dude by the chalkboard. To reverse the process, just drag downwards on the grippy dots.
