Linux Mint Windows Disappear When Minimized

I run Linux Mint on multiple computers at home. Recently I reinstalled Linux Mint and was having this strange issue where windows disappeared when I minimized them. They were no where on the taskbar and I couldn’t remember the keyboard shortcut to switch between running applications. After a little digging I realized that “Window List” was not active on my taskbar. Not sure how that happened, but easy enough to fix.

To fix the issue right-click on the taskbar, choose “Add to Panel…” and then add “Windows List”. Easy!

Hatching Aquasaurs

Triops aka “Aquasaurs” are small prehistoric creatures that can remain in suspended animation for a long time. They hatch out once they get wet and grow quickly. In that way they are like sea monkeys, but they grow much much bigger.

Here is a video taken on 2020-03-24. The Triops have hatched out and they were finally big enough to see:

Here they are four days later:

And finally here they are today, just eight days from the first video. They are getting huge!
