I wanted to remove Wolfram Language from the taskbar application launcher in Raspbian GUI, but accidentally clicked something that removed the whole panel.

How do I bring it back?

This is what it's supposed to look like:

  • The default GUI desktop environment (DE) on Raspbian, via which things like taskbars are configured, is LXDE and you will have more luck searching/researching about it under that name.

  1. Right click the Task bar.
  2. Select Add / Remove Panel Items.
  3. Press Add and select Application Launch Bar from the menu. Click Add.
  4. Select the newly added Application Launch Bar from the list, and click Preferences.
  5. Add the applications you wish to appear in the Application Launch Bar.
  6. Reorder the location of the Application Launch Bar in the list, by clicking Up/Down.
  7. Press OK to confirm.

I was also able to restore my panel from the commandline on raspbian stretch:

rm -r ~/.config/lxpanel
sudo service lightdm restart
