I am running 12.04 LTS on a Dell XPS m1330 with Gnome Classic. It there any way to move the taskbar from the top to the bottom? I absolutely detest that taskbar at the top. I've looked all over for a solution to this. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks!

Alt + right click and then properties

The taskbar is the section (on the bottom panel by default) that lists your active windows.

If it's the top panel you want to remove in 12.04 Classic, Alt+Super+Right-Click > Delete This Panel

Have you considered using a DE like Cinnamon or Mate, which start with only a bottom panel? Their default configurations might fit your needs better.

Hi. Yes! I just installed MATE and like it much much better. I couldn't get it to work at first but then realized I had to uninstall GNOME first.

For some reason the ALT+right click was not working.

Thanks for your help!

Alt + right click

Alt + Super + right click

Both do the same thing on my fully updated 12o4 box. Wonder whats up with that.

That does seem odd. Alt+Right-click doesn't work on my fully update 12.04 machine.

But then, I still can't figure out why they didn't leave it at a simple Right-click, the way it was before they introduced Unity.
