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 on the Panel
Go to Panel > Panel Preferences…
Un-Check “Lock panel”
Grab the panel by one of the ends. The handles (two vertical dots rows)on the ends.
Drag the panel to the bottom.
