It sounds like you've accidentally deleted the window list applet from the panel. Just right-click on the bottom panel and select "Add to panel". That should present you with a list of applets that can be installed. The one you want is called "Window List".

EDIT: I assumed you were using Gnome classic, but that may not be the case. IN any case, you can also bring the apps back by pressing Alt-Tab.

Thanks. I've been having the same problem with Ubuntu 12.04 and Alt-Tab does the trick.
