Ubuntu – System file windows open behind Unity launcher


I'm on Ubuntu 16.04.1 at the moment, and system windows like the Files window, Terminal or System Software open behind the Unity launcher, which means they are partially hidden behind it. I can move them with Alt+F7, but I'd like a more permanent solution to this problem.

Best Answer

Open CompizConfig Settings Manager and enable "Place Windows" under "Window Management". This should solve the problem.
