    Panel to display minimised window


    I've been experimenting with the system and as these things go I've done something and I can't undo it through lack of understanding. I've managed to disable the display of minimised windows in the panel at the bottom of the screen. To compensate I'm using a Widget which allows me to get back to the window as I need it. But I'd prefer to be able to simply click on the panel. Any idea of what I need to do?

    Ignorant but willing to learn.....

    The desktop is KDE. I still have the panel but it doesn't display minimised windows anymore. In my great ignorance I don't know what else to say- I must have removed something from the display.

    Right click desk top and unlock widgets

    Right click the panel and select add widgets

    Find Task manager and add it

    Right click the panel again and select Panel options.

    This will put a white bar above the panal and if you hover the mouse over the new task manager you will see 4 arrows you can then move the widget to where you would like it on the panel. Close the white configuration bar right click the desktop and lock widgets.
