Installed MX today. I like it. I have a lot to learn but I think it will be a fun experience.

Welcome to the forum! MX Linux runs off feedback, so don't be shy.

For the time being, I need to frequently reboot and go back to my kde install. I looked and looked for a way to do this in the gui and eventually found something. Then the next time I forgot what all I did to find that something. "How do I turn MX off" kept going through my head. I started using terminal which is easy to find but not as easy as in kde where 3 clicks and I'm rebooting. Just wanted to mention this. Not complaining.

I was lucky enough to watch a video posted here a day or so ago and it told how to put the panel at the bottom of the screen where I am used to having it. So I got that done. Would like to flip it left to right so the clock is on the right but I will get used to it 8)

I was watching a video on VLC. I bumped the keyboard and VLC went away. Clicking on the panel icons did not bring it back. I must have hit an F key. Eventually I got it back. It has been one of those days :/

I got Firefox sync set up so things are beginning to take shape. I had never used sync before.

As I said earlier, you will find it a lot easier if you take a look at the Users Manual. Section 3.8 is dedicated to customization, for instance--or you can continue to count on being lucky enough to find a video.
