cant find minimized windows

Post by mantis8 » Mon Jan 11, 2010 4:20 pm

Hey all,

I just reformatted my hdd (I had ubuntu before) and all was well. Then the next day, I realized that whenever I minimize any browser or office window, they just disappear! I've checked the forum pages, the getting started guide, etc, but no info yet. I don't really remember if this was the way it has always been, or if one of the updates I've installed messed up my system.

Any help is appreciated.

P.S. I'm using Linux Mint 8

Right-click an open area of your panel, choose Add to Panel, scroll down to Window List, Add to Panel . . done. :)
