"he first thing to notice is that Linux Mint's working space is dominated by the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. It does the exact same as the Windows taskbar. It displays the main menu button, open system tabs and different panels on the right side.

You can drag, drop, add and move other panels on it via right-clicking the taskbar."
