Dash Home not displaying any Apps

Asked by John Wheatley on 2012-08-15

I am a new user to Ubuntu but for the last few weeks Dash Home would display Apps, Files and Folders, but now is only displaying Files and Folders, and when I select Apps from the pull down menu search for Apps is displayed but nothing can be found.

Being novice i don't know all the names of the apps I have, so need an easy way to be able to see them all and select the one I require. I was doing this by typing the letter 'a' into the search line and it would display most of my Apps, but not now.

Many Thanks.

John

Sorry please disregard, having shutdown and re-started my system everything is back to normal.

Regards John

In my case it was only necessary to shutdown and start my Laptop again and all was back to normal.
