Can't see minimized windows?

On fedora 13 gnome, once I minimize a window, for example, a command terminal window, or a firefox window, I can't see it any more and therefore there is no way to get it back to normal size. I have to reopen that window.

What's problem? Thanks.

Not exactly sure, does your desktop window not show the minimized icons?

javaer, have you tried the "alt and tab" key to switch between the windows?

Does that "alt and tab" key switching work?

Does your panel show?

My panel's properties are for the bottom.

Hope this helps.

Re: Can't see minimized windows?

In addition to what diamond_ramsey says, you may have inadvertently deleted the Window List applet from your Gnome panel (or deleted the panel that had the applet from the default install).

If that's it, you can add it back by right-clicking on the Gnome panel and selecting Add to Panel, then selecting Window List. You can adjust the applet's position afterward.

yes, my alt + tab works.

I added the windows switch list, then my problem is solved.

But now I inadvertantly removed the start menu "applications, systems" from the panel, i can't get it back.

Where can i add it to the panel at the bottom? Thanks.
