Refresh Desktop

When closed a webside from internet it was from webside some signs. When I out i used this command :
gnome-shell --replace & disown
but need logout and login again lost all things what was opened.
Can I do that no logout or restart Zorin?


At work when Gnome has issues we run

killall gdm

This restarts gnome.

Usually when I want to reload the desktop, all I do is.

Hold ALT F2

R

Hit Enter

Reload Desktop

Do you type r or R? You typed R but the image shows r?

Also what does it do? Is it an alias for something? We use to have r aliased for fc -s for rerunning a previous command from the history.

Lower case r sorry.

It just reloads the desktop GUI. Quicker then restarting the computer.
