-"Ecks Eff See Eee". The name Xfce originally stood for XForms Common Environment,​ but since then, Xfce was rewritten twice and doesn'​t use XForms toolkit anymore. The name survived, but the F is nolonger ​capitalized (not "​XFce",​ but "​Xfce"​). Currently the acronym ​doesn'​t stand for anything (suggestion:​ X Freakin'​ Cool Environment).+"Ecks Eff See Eee".

-Assign a key with the Keyboard Settings -> Shortcuts to the command ''​xfdesktop -menu''​.

You can also use ''​xfce4-popup-applicationsmenu''​ to popup the panel menu (also provided by xfdesktop and make sure you have the plugin in your panel ^_~).+Assign a key with the Keyboard Settings -> Shortcuts to the command ''​xfdesktop -menu''​.

 Because xfwm4 goes fishy most times at start up it isn't bad if you have to log out. You hadn't done anything important until than. So log out, remove ~/​.cache/​sessions/​* (probably with <​code>​rm -rf ~/​.cache/​sessions/​*</​code>​ and login back again. Don't do this while you're logged in to xfce! Don't do this if you love the xfce session feature (because you delete all sessions, duh)! Because xfwm4 goes fishy most times at start up it isn't bad if you have to log out.

 If you already use xfce4.10 you have the possibility to use the GUI to delete the sessions cache (as you can see, the devs are annoyed, too). Open xfce4-sessions-settings → Session and click »Clear saved sessions«, than log out and in again. This should be all. If you already use xfce4.10 you have the possibility to use the GUI to delete the sessions cache (as you can see, the devs are annoyed, too).
