Restarting Cinnamon in Linux Mint
Talk about a need-to-know feature. Sometimes, Cinnamon gets confused. Logging in and logging out is super disruptive to productivity, so being able to restart Cinnamon without blowing away everything you have open is a nice option to have—if you’re aware of it. It’s buried in the “Troubleshoot” menu, which I never thought to look into before. Silly me. If you really want to get geeky, the “Looking Glass” console lets you inspect all kinds of X11 weirdness.
