Something has changed. everything is bunched up to the left
and changes in size depending on how many windows I have in
Does anybody know what/where I have to change to get the
behavior back to previous?
The top bar is likely a Panel. Layout and contents are very
configurable. Right-click on it, choose Panel / Panel Preferences ...,
then choose the Items tab. You can then examine every item in the panel.
One thing to watch out for are Separator items, which have an Expand
checkbox. These are the main thing I use to change layout. They are
invisible and you can also right-click on them directly. Expanded
Separator items in a panel share any unallocated space. Quite flexible,
but if you are not aware of the Expand checkbox and accidentally change
it, the layout will be quite different.
If you add a Separator with Expand checked between the items you want on
the right and the items you want on the left, you will likely get the
layout you had previously.
