Chapter 2. Overview of the GNOME Desktop

GNOME Desktop Preferences

You can use preference tools to configure almost every feature of the GNOME Desktop. Each tool controls a particular part of the behavior of the GNOME Desktop. For example, you can use a preference tool to select a theme for the GNOME Desktop. A theme is a group of coordinated settings that specify the visual appearance of a part of your interface.

You can start your preference tools in either of the following ways:

  • Choose Applications->Desktop Preferences. Choose the item that you require from the submenus.
