SUSE 12.1 KDE Taskbar Restore?

Somehow my taskbar got screwed. I did something and suddenly the [System Tray] and [Clock] got shifted left, next to [App Launcher].

I did get to the [Panel Tool Box] but I could not just move tray & clock where they should be (right). They kept snapping back left.

Tried adding a panel but it would add at top of desktop not next to existing panel at bottom.

Found a work-a-round by adding a flex-spacer between [App Launcher] and [System Tray] and [Clock], but now open windows don’t show in taskbar.

How do I restore my taskbar to default :embarrassed:

Try adding the pager widget back into the taskbar.

Sounds like you deleted the task manager widget
Add it back in

FYI: You could, in desperation… delete the panel and add back default panel

Once you finish, lock the widgets so you don’t have any more accidents.

THANKS :slight_smile: that was it.

You are most welcome

You saved my day on openSUSE 12.3

I deleted the panel and then added it back.

I tried to have the calculator icon to the left, but then my clock was suddenly to the left too.
For reasons I do not understand, dragging it back did not work, and suddenly the programs I started, did not show any-more on the panel.

After deleting and adding the panel again, I was able to drag the calculator icon, to the spot I wanted it, and the clock stayed were it was.

KDE has a habit of doing wonderfully odd things
