I tried out different themes and now the bottom right icons in the panel look ugly. Is there a way to restore to default?
Thanks.

Fount it by searching with restore as part of the keyword.
I ran the following command in the terminal and nows it is back
"gsettings reset-recursively org.cinnamon"

Run the Mint Welcome dialogue again and choose the panel layout from either traditional or modern, it resets the layout completely. Also reset your theme choices in System Settings to Mint-Y if that alone doesn't work.

Thanks antikythera, you saved me.

I lost my toolbar (workbar?) from the bottom of my screen and couldn't really do anything. I was lanching all my programs from terminal for awhile. Lol.

I restored it from the panel layout and by choosing "modern".

Thanks, Ed
