Hi all...
.... sorry if I bother you again but I'm getting mad with a mistery I havn't found a solution to so far... I'm struggling on it... scored the forum but found no answers!!

Well... the tray in the lower part of my desktop... it's missing part of its content.. precisely the "Show desktop" icon and the multiple desktop navigator commands... and something else perhaps... can't remember...

Could you please tell me how to restore it all???

Thank you so much!!

Right click the task bar and select Add to Panel, navigate to and add Show Desktop and Workspace Shifter.

You might need to right them once added and move to the required position.

Right click on the panel - Add to Panel

Show Desktop
Workspace Switcher

Not sure what else is on a default bottom panel.

Weird enough, the way to work with panels is so intuitive, it's almost contra-intuitive if your used to work with windows. I used to have problems with it as well.
