I am using Gnome window manager on RedHat Enterprise Linux v2.6.9-67 and recently my Gnome sessions started behaving differently and I do not know what I did to cause this or to restore the old behavior.

Previously, I had icons for each window along the bottom of the screen in a bar, now there is still a bar, but no icons for windows appear. Consequently, once a window is minimized, I cannot find anyway to raise it again. Starting a new Gnome session from scratch has same behavior.

Please suggest what I can do such that I can create a Gnome session where I can re-raise windows after minimizing them by having their icon appear again along the bar at bottom of window?

The following steps will add icons for each window along the bottom of the screen in a bar:

  1. Right-click on the panel.
  2. Choose Add to Panel.
  3. Scroll down the list of items in the Add to Top Panel dialog, then select Workspace Switcher.
  4. Click Add.
