how to access and display apps that I've launched

Sun Jul 23 14:25:00 GMT 2017


I updated my Cywin installation on the 21st or 22nd of July 2017.  I run 
32-bit Cygwin/X on 64-bit Win 7 Pro.  If I launch the Cygwin Xwin Server 
I get the icon at the very top middle of the screen and can then go into 
the icons menu and right click on the Cygwin icon and get a list of 
categories of applications to run and apparently launch because if I try 
to launch some and wait long enough and right click on the 
aforementioned icon and select quit it says there are N apps running and 
do I want to close them.  The problem is that anything I launch through 
the icons menu doesn't display anywhere and in particular doesn't appear 
in the task bar.  I have read the FAQ and UG but can't find what I'm 
looking for.  It definitely seems to me that the behaviour has changed 
since before I updated.

Can somebody please tell me what I am doing wrong?  I would be very 
grateful for any help.  Thanks in advance.
