I don't know about your machine but on mine, the square brackets indicate windows that have been minimized.  To get rid of the brackets, just restore the window.

Thanks. Knew that too ;) But I don't want them to show at all. Is that possible?

Not that big of a deal. Just want to know why they are there and if there is a possibility to remove them ;)

on my desktop, I only see one bracket amongst the many tabs open... never noticed them before honestly... so I guess they never bothered me?


They appear and disappear. So why do they appear and disappear? While I'm typing this they are gone. But when I do ctrl alt d to go to the desktop, they are there again :-\

I (among many, I guess) found Peppermint in search of a linux version of Chrome OS.
 While in that search, I tried out several "lightweight" distros to install  on older computers that couldn't handle Windows 10. After trying out at least a half a dozen,  I returned to Peppermint. I am no longer looking for a Chrome OS alternative, (although I still use ICE occasionally), but P mint is my favorite among light distros.
I use Win 10 on most of my computers, but if were to need to use Linux full-time, I know of no "full-weight" distros that I would prefer over P mint.
I look forward to a bright future for Peppermint!

Awesome! And me too ;)

dirived from the post 'A Newbie Discussion'

Some noddy or noddies [at google?] decided that it was handy [cool?] to have tabs along the top edge of the browser [chrome] instead of along the top of the actual site area [often called tabs on top] so that adress and bookmarks bars form a separator. Many browsers including Firefox now tow this line and even removed the 'on top' option. Pale Moon [a Firefox dirivative]: is my alternative in Windows. I now find there are more browsers available in the Linux community which still have my preferred Tabs on top [of the site field] option which is good news. Just as amatter of interest can I get Pale Moon running in P10? I picked up the TAR from the Pale Moon site, and extracted it. None of the instructions for installation via Terminal work, practically speaking I get 'no such file or directory' or when something does start it comes back with a 'failed' message. Even the [correct] instructions for installing a TAR, IN PEPPERMINT, would help...

Answer from 'murraymint'  quote              All I can tell you is that a tar is just an archive and usually contains instructions within it for the software. If they don't work you'd need to post the specifics of what you're typing in and what response you get.

Thanks so far: I shall get back to this post with examples, if I understand correctly a TAR is not a guarantee for successful installation?

 lliam in Downloads look for the wagon wheel icon palemoon, right click make link and drag it to your desktop, click on it and Palemoon opens. You can change the icon, right click, Properties.

Personally, I prefer NOT to have icons on my desktop screens. Somehow or another I managed to put a launcher for Seamonkey in the taskbar panel... but that wasn't what I was intending. But it's working for me on my desktop.

I will be away for a while, so perhaps another Trusted User will chime in shortly


Only 2 iconsfor me without them my desktop feels naked. I don't know how to get the launcher on the panel. Clatterford Slim does.

I don't know how to get them in the menu's. I always make a link for Thunderbird and Firefox, drag it to my desktop and modify the icon via Properties. I download the icons for Thunderbird and Firefox.

BTW I just dowloaded and installed the tarball of Palemoon. Screenshot:
