Today I discovered that there is a keyboard shortcut (by default) for minimizing windows in Ubuntu 12.04. The shortcut key is Ctrl + Alt + 0. I was trying to minimize windows and suddenly I minimized Cairo dock's workspace switcher and weblet. I am unable to restore them now! They are not appearing anywhere, neither in Cairo-dock nor in the Unity panel. How can I make them visible again?

I have tried to go through various discussion threads on internet, however nobody seems to have had this exact problem.


I was able to restore the weblet and workspace switcher by switching the weblet and worspace-switcher OFF and ON again in cairo-dock settings. Even though I was unable to unminimize the windows, I was able to restore them by this procedure.
