What can I do with the shelf?

The shelf is the row of icons along the bottom of your screen. If you want to access your favorite apps easily and quickly on your desktop, you can ‘pin,’ or place, apps onto your shelf. To do so, right-click on the app’s icon in the Launcher or app menu and choose “pin to shelf.” If you want to unpin an app, move the cursor above the icon, right-click, and choose “unpin.”  You can change the location of the shelf using your settings, or by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing your preferred location.
