Right click on the taskbar and select "Configure panel" and play around
with the options in custom styling. More sweeping changes to the system
can be done in Preferences → LXQt Settings → Appearance.

Even after reading the summary at the end?

I'm struggling to to understand what you're trying to explain. Could you
perhaps go through the process again (say, in a virtual machine), and
keep track of the steps necessary to see this?

You seem to suggest there are applications you have installed which do
not have this strange behavior. Which are they?

What resolution are you dealing with? This may have an effect on your
impression. Pixel wise, I think you'll find the two desktop environments
essentially identical.

This may have had something to do with how you had Qt widgets themed (or
not) in your LXDE install. It looks the same to me on Bionic as it does
on Disco.

Agreed, based on the default window size, but you can always contract
it. There is not yet a way to set it to a particular width. I think this
is worthy of a feature request. Please file a bug!

Actually, this is true even in unmounted devices where the button is not
there. There's certainly an excessive margin. File a bug, please.

I agree something is weird here but no, that's not true. The top most
one offers the option of Places or Directory Tree. Within Places are
three options: Places, Devices, Bookmarks. Ultimately the top-level
Places needs a different name, but I don't know whta it is.

Are you saying only those applications or all of the applications in
that area?

It's never too late to start!
