 In the top right corner of the desktop, is a menu combining various settings: volume control, network, logout/​switch user, power and preferences. At first, it may look strange, because the top bar displays separate icons for volume, power etc, but what you click in this area doesn'​t matter, in all cases you get a pull-down menuy containing these settings: In the top right corner of the desktop, is a menu combining various settings: volume control, network, logout/​switch user, power and preferences. At first, it may look strange, because the top bar displays separate icons for volume, power etc, but what you click in this area doesn'​t matter, in all cases you get a pull-down menuy containing these settings:
   * Volume: here you can select the audio volume   * Volume: here you can select the audio volume

There is nothing to be gained by messing up your network connection ​(but it is hardcoded into the Gnome shell, so not possible for us to remove this setting).

Only the personal preferences should be changeable for you, although some hardware properties seem to be accessible in the current setup. Please be careful! It may be easy to mess things up, and hard to fix.   * A tool icon: this opens the preferences window, divided in personal, hardware and system preferences.
