    How to Reset Desktop?

    How to reset desktop? I mean resetting the entire desktop, including the menu (?) bar at the top right of the screen?

    dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ log out and in.
    To refresh your Unity launcher with the default set of icons: unity --reset-icons

    No need to log out and back in. Following dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ just use setsid unity which will restart unity.

    This dconf bit will reset unity.
