Can't find diminished folders

Asked by Tim Leach on 2012-04-05

I have recently upgraded to the new ubuntu but I am now experiencing a little problem. Be it a web page or a word file, or anything, when I press the - (inbetween the x and the square thing) sign to diminish it, it flies to the bottom left of the screen and I can no longer find it again. I know it must be somewhere because when I tried to turn my computer off it asked me if I wanted to save the page I was typing. Where is it though?

Was that any good? I'm sorry for being so dim witted about it all. If I was to press the "-" button to diminish this page, on windows it would just become a small bar at the bottom of the page which I only need to click on to get back to. If I do it now, though, this page would just vanish. PLease can you help me and tell me where it goes? Thank you so much for your help.

Press ctrl+alt+t to open a terminal and then type:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel

rm -rf $HOME/.gconf/apps/panel

pkill gnome-panel

Its the default behaviour, someone posts ANYTHING on launchpad and all subscribers get emailed. I suggest you setup a filter on your emails.
