can't restore minimized windows
Hi When I minimize a window it shrinks down to the bottom right corner never to be seen again. It used to be that whatever programs I was working with would show up in the work space switcher and I would click on the one I wanted to use. Now nothing shows in the work space switcher and I can't see minimized program windows so can't restore them.

what desktop environment / window manager are you using ?
kinda hard to give an answer when for the most part they are all different in some way shape
or form ...

Sorry about that posted in a hurry.

RH9, Gnome 2.0, firefox 9.3 and whatever the default window manager that comes with Gnome.

can't restore minimized windows
Click on your toolbar and select an 'action panel'. When it appears click on the little icon in the top right corner and it should give a list of all your open programs which will allow you to select the one you want to maximize.

or just add the "window list" to the "toolbar" and see everything that is opened down
there which i am sure is what you want ...
