        Hi there Miles and the others, many thanks. I called my nephew
        in Pretoria who is also quite expert in Ubuntu and we had to
        reset Unity via ctrl/alt/f1, now everything is back to normal.
        My Unity window behaviour is also fixed up. Great!

    Morning Jan ,

    For reference , can you give us the command/s that you ran after
    going to ctrl+alt+F1 to reset Unity.
