I am using Ubuntu 18.04.2. I use a TV thru HDMI and the adjustment for TV. It looks great.
When I start in they AM there is usually the favorites bar on the left that displays my favorite programs. After a few times when the computer has gone into sleep mode (or whatever that is called) and I log back in, the bar on the left is gone and I have to hit "Activities" at the top for it to show up.
I would like it to always be there. I went into "display" settings and the "Auto-hide the Dock" is off. That seems to be the only thing that sounds like it should apply.
Does anyone know what to do?
