This chapter introduces the GNOME desktop in Fedora. The desktop becomes easier to use after you know some of the common terminology used, beginning with the GNOME desktop.

If you installed Fedora 10 from the Fedora 10 Live image, whether for Intel or compatible (i686), PowerPC (ppc), or 64-bit (x86_64), GNOME is the installed desktop. If you installed an alternative desktop, you may skip to the appropriate section: Tour of the KDE Desktop or Tour of the Xfce Desktop .

[edit] Application Launchers

The series of icons next to the menus provide quick access to commonly used applications. These icons are called launchers.

To restore the windows, click the Show Desktop button again and all windows return to their previous location.
