I was tweaking gnome with the gnome tweak tool and suddenly a bar appeared at the bottom of the screen. See picture: enter image description here It's the bar with Alanis Morissette and Lightweight Django.

I've installed some shell extensions. I suspect shellshape could be the culprit, but I find no settings in it regarding this.

I also tried toggling the gnome extension 'windows list', but that didn't work either.

Another gnome extension, TaskBAr, is not installed.


That's a standard Gnome Classic feature.

Make sure the Gnome shell extension Window List is disable.

Then, just log out from your user account, and by the settings (look for a gear) choose Gnome instead of Gnome Classics.


Hover the mouse over the panel on free space, press Alt + right mouse (for me it is Alt but it may be Ctrl, Ctrl+Super, try also with no modifier). One of the options is "Delete this panel", or look at "Properties" and choose appropriate settings.

  • that is, you get this menu but no options works, or you don't get the menu? – Andra May 17 '18 at 18:40
  • I don't get the menu, no matter what combination of alt/ctrl/super and right clicks. – janis verdi May 17 '18 at 18:44
  • Alt+Windows+right mouse ? Win/Super. And you should click on free space on the panel. – Andra May 17 '18 at 19:00
  • Yes I tried this and nothing, but maybe this keys are configured for something else. – janis verdi May 17 '18 at 19:01
