    minimize buttons gone, Sonia my desktop

    Ubuntu 20.04. for some reason there are no minimize/maximize/close buttons on any windows I open. Also, my desktop icons are gone and I can't resize anything so when I open Mozilla (or anything) I have to quit it to see what's under it.
    How do I even start diagnosing this?

    I think gnome by default doesn't have those buttons. To get them you have to install gnome-tweak-tool to enable them.

    Your window manager crashed? When that happens everything becomes frameless on the desktop.
