    Default How do I remove the New Activity Tab?

    During my last boot something installed itself that is very annoying and I would like to remove it. The upper right side of my desktop has a tab called New Activity and there is a translucent bar across the top. Now when I right click an item on my bottom task bar the menu appears at the very top of the desktop instead of opening just above the icon. This is an improvement? How do I remove this feature?

    This is normal, if you mean the cashew


    there is a translucent bar across the top
    Can you show us? Screenshot post at: SUSE Paste

    Try this: Right click desktop > Lock Widgets
    Does that change the bottom panel actions

    I also learned that I cannot open my desktop widget on my bottom tool bar. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    The OP means

    Yes, I'm not sure that I'll find this feature useful yet. AFAIU, its not able to be disabled, but it doesn't mean one needs to use it.

    Interesting, when I rebooted my computer today the "cashew" is gone. If it reappears I will post some screen shots.

    Ok, It came back again. It booted without the New Activity tab about 15 times before it returned. Widget locking has no effect. See Image at

    Unfortunately that image is going to be deleted after 1 week.

    Anyway: What happens when you click it?

    Unlock widgets and drag it to the top-right corner.

    And your cashew is not gone. This 'tab' is your cashew. It looks like that if it is not placed in a corner.

    I had the same as in your image when I added a new panel to my desktop today.
    I think you added something and don't realise it
    or
    You have a top panel and it's pushed the desktop cashew down
    Switch off effects and you'll see it
