Do you expect her to do things? Can you hire someone to do the things?

I'm not sure what this big disaster is?
KDE is known as a DE that does not play nicely with Cinnamon on the same installation. If people want to add KDE to Mint, it's strongly recommended to use XFCE as a base.

Re: no icon in status bar of working programs

It sounds like you do not have any version of the WindowsList applet installed and added to your panel. Can you tell us your desktop environment? It is MATE, Xfce or Cinnamon.
