[SOLVED] program Tabs missing from panel

Postby Captain Brillo » Tue Oct 24, 2017 1:06 am

New install Mint 18.2 Mate

The tabs in the panel for each running program or applet are gone; I have no idea what's running if it's minimized.

This also happened in a new install of Ubuntu mate 16.04.

Is this a Mate failure?

Can it be fixed?

I presume you did not get an answer to this?

I have just installed LM Qiana 17 32 bit on a Dell Latitude D610 and have the same problem. Running programs can be revealed using Alt-Tab but as you say, in the panel at the bottom, there is no tab to allow you to switch, or even see what is running.

DOH!

Just found the solution.

* Right click the Panel
* Select Add to Panel
* scroll down and find Window List

Select and close, and Robert is your Mother's Brother
