Thread: Minimizing Windows

    Default Minimizing Windows


    I feel sort of silly for asking this question, but it seems when I
    minimize a window it closes the application. Shouldn't it minimize to
    the panel like the task bar in windows. I am new to Linux, but everytime
    I minimize a window, I can't seem to find out where it goes so I can
    maximize it again...

    I checked my process table and I had over twenty instances of firefox
    running in minimized mode, I killed them all until I can figure out how
    to maximize the windows. This is frustrating me. Need help where does a
    minimized window go? They are not visible on the panel.

    The panel holds applets, the one that shows apps that are running is
    called "Task Manager".

    It sound as if your panel lost its task manager applet.

    To add it back right click the panel and select "add widgets" from
    panel options and add the "task manager" widget.

    To move it to its rightfull place right click the panel again and
    select "panel settings" from panel options.
