Hi - Welcome to the Mint family. I am a Windows convert as well and am enjoying Linux Mint.
Which desktop environment (Mate / Cinnamom / KDE) are you using?
Cheers,

Great, even am using KDE, which has a steep learning curve. It took me some time to understand the desktop containment concepts - workspaces, activities and figured that the widgets could be added to a panel as well as desktop.
I am running the latest KDE Plasma Desktop 4.10.1 - which is great.
Sharing some links which have helped me.
