I've installed Linux Mint 19.1 with the Mate desktop.

When I click on the minimize button on any window, the window disappears and I can't find how to return it to the screen.

Any running process, such as copy, will continue to run.

  • It seems you are asking people to direct you into using a graphical interface. Do you have a more specific question? What is exactly the problem into maximizing it again? If you do not want to keep running things there, why not closing it then? – Rui F Ribeiro Jan 3 at 11:24

    It looks like you removed the window list applet from from your panel. I'm not running mate or gnome and cannot help you further, but try right clicking on the panel and then choose 'add to panel' and look for 'window list' or 'window switcher' or something like that. But you should be able to return the window to the screen with Alt-Tab, even without that. – mosvy Jan 3 at 12:39
  • That's it mosvy, adding Window List to the Panel fixed the problem, thanks. – Robert McCoughtry Jan 4 at 6:12
