    Question How to get my desktop folder out of the task bar in 11.3?

    The task bar manager swallowed my desktop folder when I was moving it around. Now, I have a little folder icon that pops up a menu when I click it. How do I put my desktop folder back on the desktop w/o endangering my task manager? Thanks in advance.

    you _should_ be able to drag it back to the desktop, the same way you got
    it into the panel. (you have to unlock your widgets, obviously, and to
    click on the diamond-thing at the right corner of your panel to be able to
    move around the widgets.)

    if that doesn't work, again, unlock your widgets if they are locked, then
    right-click on the desktop-icon in your panel and choose to "remove" it.
    next right-click on the desktop, "add widgets", then choose "folder view."
    either double-click on that, or drag it to the desktop.

    if it doesn't point to your desktop folder by default, open it's settings
    and tell it to show the desktop folder.

    Unlock widgets
    Click the cashew icon in the right corner of the panel
    delete the folder in the panel

    Now right click desktop > add widget > folder view
    Then configure it to the view you want
    Then lock widgets

    Thanks, I was afraid to obliterate my task manager again, but your instructions work.
