  • The layout of two main Fedora desktops, GNOME and KDE
  • How to use the file and system navigator
  • How to use the e-mail client

  • How to use the OpenOffice.org office suite
  • How to customize your Fedora desktop

Other sources of help

This guide is not a replacement for the documentation included on your system by individual programs. This guide can give you a brief overview of some basic tasks, but you need to read the documentation provided by each application for more in-depth coverage of specific tasks. This documentation can usually be found at the Help > Contents entry in an application's menu, or by pressing the [F1] key.

Help for console applications can be found by typing

man program-name

in a terminal, where program-name is the application of which you want to view the manual page.

For additional Fedora documentation on topics such as security, virtualization, or known bugs, visit:
