When you turn on your computer, it loads fast and comes up with the desktop. It's a simple, soothing, clutter-free sight with an easy-to-use bottom dock and top panel.
The dock shows your favorite apps and what windows are open. You can move app icons around, drag them off to remove them, or pin your open application to keep its icon there. It's simple and easy on the eyes, just like the rest of elementary.
The top panel holds the indicators that show you what's going on. You can click each item to interact with it. For example, you can connect to a network, read your messages, or turn off your computer by opening the corresponding indicator's menu.
