The power of Gnome Shell lies in its extensionability. It is this power that transforms the barely unusable vanilla Gnome Shell desktop environement into a powerful and extremely usable and productive desktop environment. Gnome shell has a number of useful installations to enhance the user experience. To learn how to install and enable them using the Gnome Tweak tool check out our post on Installing and using Gnome Shell. In this post we will look at some must have Gnome shell extensions.
Favourites Panel Extension
This extension puts all the shortcuts in the favourites panel on the top panel. This gives a quicker way to launch applications. However, the shorcuts cannot be added or removed from the top panel directly, you will have to do addition and deletion in the favourites panel only. This extension is a part of the zip file downloaded.
