Open window disappears when minimized

Postby jacatone on Tue Sep 04, 2012 6:31 pm

I screwed up something when trying to add icons to the taskbar. When I have an open window like the file manager or firefox and I minimize it, rather than appearing in the taskbar it disappears completely. How would I fix this? Thanks.

Panel Settings > Panel Applets list
Click add > click "Task Bar (Window List)" > click add
Make sure "Task Bar (Window List)" is highlighted .... then click Up button until "Task Bar (Window List)" is just under "Application Launch Bar" in the list.

I had the same problem Mint 16 Mate.

I had to right-click on the panel (where your icons and menu are located) and choose "Add to Panel."

Scroll down and select "Windows List."

Click "+ Add" button.

You should be able to see your minimized windows now.
