    Hi and Welcome !

    It looks like you have removed Applet from Panel. Right click on the Panel and select Add Applet or something like that. A list of Applets will pop up. Try adding Windows List applet. In case it doesn't work, try another applet.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    If you have a another computer with Windows installed, you can use YUMI to install a Linux iso to a USB. Just download the iso for the Linux distribution you want, and then open up YUMI and follow the instructions to install the iso. When finished, you need to restart your computer and boot from the USB.
