Lost Start Button - SOLVED!
« on: February 24, 2009, 02:33:57 pm »

For some reason, my Start button at the bottom left of the screen has disappeared!  How do I get it back?

Hi:
To get your menu back do the following.
Right Click on panel and choose add new item.
Select Xfce Menu from the list of items you can add.

You can then right click your menu and choose move to move it where you want.

To get your icon back right click the menu again and choose properties.

Put the following line for Button icon in the properties window.
