Chapter 5. Panel Menubar
Copyright and Legal Notice

This chapter describes how to use the GNOME Panel Menubar.

The panel menubar is your main point of access to GNOME. Use the Applications menu to launch applications, the Places to open locations on your computer or network, and the Desktop to customize your system, get help with GNOME, and log out of GNOME or shut down your computer.

The following sections describe these three menus.


By default, the panel menubar is on the Top Edge Panel. But like any other panel object, you can move the menubar to another panel, or have more than one instance of the menubar in your panels. For more on this, see the section called Menus.
