I was installing a file from the terminal and then hit F12 to minimize the terminal so I could get access to a text file. After I obtained the needed information, I hit F12 but the terminal wouldn't appear. The top bar said Terminator but no matter what I did it wouldn't visually appear. I ended up having to open another instance of the terminal reboot and not make that mistake again.
Is there a way to get the terminal to appear in a situation like this?
