Thanks for the reply.

I am talking about the task bar panel, so there is no menu to right
click on - eg on this bar/panel I currently have a number of
spreadsheets, docs, browsers, xterms etc running and I want to order
them . . 

Right clicking on this bar/panel allows me to get at "Properties" but
there is nothing there to allow me order the apps . .
