I am using Xubuntu 12.10 and would like to change the panel which is currently on the bootm to the top. This is the opposite of what most people using Unity want to do.

I have done this in the past but have forgotten how and could not find the info easily this time. Cheers,

Right click panel . Panel>Panel Preferences>CLEAR Lock Panel . You will see a "handle" (double dotted line) on the end of the panel . Move the panel by handle . Lock Panel .
