I lost the taskbar on my Raspberry Pi but I can't figure out how to bring it back. What can I do?

Just do an update, this is a known problem with the latest Raspbian Stretch image. When you enable the VNC server, this can happen. Alternatively, if you don't need the VNC server, you can disable it.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot
  • I tried the above suggestion... still doesn't work. All started after i did a dist-upgrade. Hopefully it works with a future update. – John Oct 3 '17 at 22:03

Try moving/renaming/deleting ~/.config/lxpanel then logging out and back in perhaps?
