    Icon or key combo to show all programs opened


    I can't find where I might have asked this already and I forgot answer. I used to have a taskbar icon that is used to show all apps/files/programs that are open, displayed in miniature on the desktop. I removed icon from taskbar because I had no intention of using it. Now I can't find it to put back and don't remember the keys to punch to accomplish same thing. Occasionally I hit something inadvertently and this happens, reminding I'd like to call up the screens intentionally.

    :)

    GPU-Z Program Icon Submission

    Suggestion to have an option to change Notification Area icon this way too.
    Suggestion to finally have proper separate Options window like most (all?) Windows programs do.

    Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.
