Thank you for your comment.
I will investigate further.
So far, I have installed two distros with Cinnammon.
In both cases , there is a menu for setting Panel . The only widget I can find is one which is called Cinnamon window list , which does not have "maximize" and "minimize" as in the usual Gnome add widget.
I have used computer often for multi-tasking , where I can have six or eight task windows running , and can go from one task task to another , for example to copy and paste selections when authoring a website or doing a large document.

But, if you don't want to install something else, the default Cinnamon task switch (Alt-Tab) works really great:
