Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

After I minimised a file operations window showing me the progress of copying a 100 gb file, I cannot restore it in any way. I tried the proposed solutions from When copying files and the focus is changed the file copy status window is no longer available as well as from How to restore file copy / transfer status window?, but none seem to work. Ticking "Show Copy Dialog"/Alt + Tab/Alt + ~/Alt + Mousewheel etc. change nothing.

Any ideas? This is getting quite frustrating.

It appears that this may be a known bug, and it's affecting me as well. –  mondoswank Feb 10 at 12:49
