    Missing button in gnome panel!


    Hi, I don't know how, but with my mouse I have made the button of the lower gnome panel (the one that lets you minimize all the windows) disappear! Now the question is, how the heck can I bring it back??

    Thanks a lot! I'm missing it

    Right click on lower panel, click on Add Applet. add Show Desktop from Applets List.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Right click on the panel, choose to add an applet and in the list that will pop up, choose "show desktop".

    Thanks a lot! And one more question, Can I make a shortcut to that button with a key combination? I mean like, pressing ALT + SHIFT will "show desktop". Can it be done?

    Thank you!

    i think Show Desktop shortcut is pre-defined in GNOME.
    i am not a GNOME user so i can't tell exactly. its Ctrl+F1, F2..... etc in KDE.
    check Keyboard shortcuts in Preferences.
