Unhappy kde task bar


I'm new to KDE. When I click minimise my applications disappear instead of appearing on the task bar. I can't seem to find any settings anywhere that allow me to see my minimised applications on the taskbar.. please help.. I need to see them!!

Have you by chance got your kde set up so the task bar is hidden ?

i.e. is there a small arrow/triangle showing on either the extreme left or right of where the task bar should be ?

If so, then just click the arrow.

If that's not the case then I'll post again in a mo!

regards

John

or is it just that you've got the taskbar switched on and just not got the application icons showing?

if so my system I open the kde control centre>look'nfeel>taskbar and check the box for "show application icon's"

regards

Or also check into kde control centre>look'nfeel>panel's the basic positioning seems to be on the "arrangement" tab

Exclamation

I've added the windowlist button to my task bar at the moment i have to use that to access my applications. Does having this open disable the chance of having my open windows visible on the taskbar?
