I am unable to see the running applications in the panel. I can't switch between open windows. How can I fix it? I tried to open windows manager and windows tweak manager but they won't open. So far I have tried resetting Xfce settings and using dconf-editor to reset all settings to default which didn't work either. Please help.

    running command xfwm4 started the windows manager and then it simply worked. For some reason, xfwm4 doesn't start on the boot and I have to manually start the service. Oct 31, 2021 at 3:48

Run xfmw4 --replace and then reboot.
