A few months back, I took up the prompted offer to upgrade from Ubuntu 18 to 20. I now am left with two infuriating problems that occur every time I boot the computer.
After loading, the taskbar at the bottom appears as I have configured it to but the desktop is blank. I found out from a bit of research that I can hit ALT + F2 then r and Enter to get it to “Restart.” This does work consistently and gets me going but why do I have to do this every single time I load the computer? A permanent solution would be appreciated.
If I move my mouse onto the taskbar at the bottom then cross the mouse onto one of the preview popup windows, this results in all of the windows being locked open but being unresponsive. The only way to clear them is to maximise and then minimise ever single open window by clicking on their taskbar buttons in order to get back to a clear desktop again. Hitting the “Minimise All” button at the bottom right of the screen does not work while the windows are locked.
All help appreciated.
