Look at the bottom bar

I made some tweaks using the Gnome tweaks and added many extensions and at the end i ended up like this.

Everytime when i open new applications the dock got covered by the new tab like windows for every applications. Please help me to fix and go back to a clean look without re installation.

  • This may be caused by nearly duplicate dock extensions, see this answer for a similar case. – J. Starnes Nov 27 '17 at 20:26

If you want to remove the bar with the window names at the bottom, disable the Window List extension from the "Extensions" section of (GNOME) Tweaks or from this webpage: https://extensions.gnome.org/local/ (need to install one browser add-on/extension suggested by the page first).

Also there's a possibility that you have (unintentionally) logged into a "GNOME Classic" session which has "Window List" extension activated by default.

In that case reboot (or log out) and on the login screen, after entering your password click on the cogwheel (⚙️) next to the sign in button. It should show you different available sessions. Choose "Ubuntu" (or Ubuntu on Xorg) or "GNOME" (or GNOME on Xorg, but not GNOME Classic) session.
