<SOLVED>Moving Show Desctop icon

Postby mishoshko » Mon Oct 02, 2017 7:16 am

Hello,

Is there a way to change the position of Show Desktop icon to the bottom right(like it is on Windows 10)?
I just installed Linux mint after using Windows for a long time. I don't care about icons and pointer and etc. but "Show desktop" in windows was very convenient...
I tried to search Google and in this forum but didn't find the answer. If there is already such topic please give me the link ;)

Thank you.

EDIT:
I get it. Just needed to edit the panel and moved the icon. Sorry for asking this stupid question...i guess more are coming :)

First things first... which version of Mint are you using, and with which desktop environment? Interface stuff like this is highly dependent on DE.

if you are using the Mate Desktop:
it will be Locked to the Taskar:
- R/click it - - uncheck "Lock to Panel".
- R/click it - - Move - - drag it to the RHS of the Taskbar ..
- R/click it - check "Lock to Panel'.

Done.
:D

That certainly helps!

Rightclick on an empty part of the panel (the bar at the bottom of the screen) and then on the 'Panel edit mode' switch. Now items on the panel, including that 'show desktop' button, can be dragged to different positions. When you're done, switch 'Panel edit mode' off.

How's that?
