Linux: XFCE desktop environment: No borders around the application windows and how to fix it

Problem: After log in a XFCE session the borders around the application windows were missing. There is also only one desktop available.


Reason: The xfwm4 window manager (= the application which provides the borders araound the windows and more) isn’t running. This usually happens after a session was not closed properly.

Solution
(1) Go to Applications menu > Run program or press Alt+F2.
(2) Type „xfwm4 –replace“ in the input field and press run. Do not toggle „Run in terminal“.
(3) Log out from current session making sure „Save session for future logins“ is toggled.

Everything with XFCE  should be fine even after reboot now.
