Title says it all folks. Older versions of Ubuntu don't have the behavior at all but I can't even find what it's called.

Thanks in advance!

Dupe on AskUbuntu stack exchange site: How do I modify or disable the HUD's use of the Alt key? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 15 '12 at 20:42
Ubuntu 11 or Ubuntu 12? I think the HUD appears in Ubuntu 12.04 and not in earlier versions. – user151227 Aug 16 '12 at 5:23

I don't know if this helps but, You can change the hotkey for the HUD by going to System Settings --> Keyboard --> Short-cuts.

Unfortunately, doesn't work for me in my Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) installation. "Key to show the HUD" is marked "Disabled" but that annoying search box keeps coming up - I use that key for other things! – Tom Swirly Jul 19 '14 at 19:20
