GNOME Tweak Tool 3.16.2

GNOME Tweak Tool is an open source and very powerful utility that allows users to configure many aspects of the GNOME desktop environment, including appearance, extensions, fonts, startup apps, workspaces, and peripheral devices.

Also known as Advanced Settings or Tweak Tool, the application is usually distributed with any Linux-based operating system, which means that newcomers can easily download and install it using the Software Center application of their distribution.

Designed for GNOME

The latest version of the application follows the GNOME HIG (Human Interface Guidelines) and provides users with an easy-to-use-and-navigate graphical interface comprised of a sidebar, which contains the main sections, and the configuration area.

In addition, it comes with a built-in search function and GNOME Panel integration. The main configuration settings include Appearance, Desktop, Extensions, Fonts, Keyboard and Mouse, Power, Startup Applications, Top Bar, Typing, Windows, and Workspaces.

You will be able to customize a wide variety of GNOME settings

The program allows users to customize advanced GNOME options and settings, such as the behavior on laptop lid close, the virtual workspaces, enable, disable and configure shell extensions, add or remove startup apps, as well as to configure the mouse and keyboard devices.

It can also be used to change the GTK+ theme, fonts, icons, mouse cursor, shell theme, wallpaper, desktop icons, the titlebar click action, panel clock to display the date and second, calendar to display week numbers, numerous typing keybindings, and advanced window options.

Another interesting feature is the ability to click the panel entry of the application in order to quickly reset all settings to default or to disable all shell extensions. Furthermore, the built-in search functionality allows novices to quickly search for a specific option.

Bottom line

Summing up, GNOME Tweak Tool is an extraordinary application for helping novices and experienced users alike to set up various basic or advanced aspects of the GNOME desktop environment. It’s like oxygen for the modern GNOME user!
