Bottom Panel

Post by pfd27 » Thu Aug 06, 2015 9:33 pm

Hi Guys

I seem to have messed up the panel at the bottom of the screen.
I deleted it by mistake, but did get it back. The one I have now does not show what programs are open
and I can't find the battery icon or the wifi icon in the add to panel list.
Is there a way to revert to what came with a fresh install.
I'm running 17.2 Mate 64

Right-click on a vacant part of the panel. Click "Add to Panel". A whole lot of stuff you didn't know existed will come up, including what you have lost, You can also change the colour of your panel from here.
