  • MEMORY: 32Gb

So I accidentally deleted the bottom start bar.  Is there an easy way to get it back to looking like when I first installed LL 4.2?

I don't know if resetting it to "factory conditions" is possible but you can right click on the desktop.
Applications > Preferences > Panel
From there you can add a panel to your desktop and put launchers and widgets to your liking.

That didn't work well.   Looks like a big mess now.

If completely deleted its possible to rebuild it by configuring a new panel and adding in New Items, Launchers, Separators etc etc... Which is what @UltraCookie is referring..
This older post may help to get you back in the right direction.. https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/other/taskbar-is-missing/msg3026/#msg3026


If the original panel (panel1) is still there only jacked up may be posting a screenshot, someone might be able to give input...

Another option, if you have made a recent Time Shift backup would be to use use the restore point and revert back...

** Update ** added a screenshot of my 3.x system.. Should be relatively close.. Panel /Add New/Properties of an object... You'll add then tweak setting it its own properties, not the just panel properties.

  • MEMORY: 3Gb

For the 3.8 32 bit it works from the terminal with all this commands.
cp -r ~/.config/xfce4 ~/.config/xfce4.old
cp -r ~/.config/xfce4-session ~/.config/xfce4-session.old
xfce4-panel --quit ; pkill xfconfd ; rm -rf ~/.config/xfce4; rm -rf ~/.config/xfce4-session ; cp -Rf /etc/skel/.config/xfce4 ~/.config/xfce4; cp -Rf /etc/skel/.config/xfce4-session ~/.config/xfce4-session ; sudo reboo

I do not know if this going to work with ur 4.2 64bit
