[SOLVED] mintMenu reset

Postby Knowcontrol » Wed Jan 02, 2013 6:59 pm

Hello, first-time Mint user. I'm curious about Mate v14 - Why when I leave the mintMenu does it not reset to the Favorites display? The same is true when entering a search, the search text still remains when returning to the mintMenu.

I feel it should 'reset' just like any other OS menu out there. What's the purpose of having a beautiful Favorites menu UI when it's never displayed?

As far as I remember you can right-click the menu and choose to start with the favorites.

Thank you for the reply. I actually just found the setting and wanted to reply how to find it. It was driving me absolutely batty!

    Right-click the Mint Menu button > Select Preferences
    On the Options tab > Select Always Start With Favorites Pane
It's as simple as that!
