Things to do after installing Pop OS

  • Add some extensions from the GNOME website – https://extensions.gnome.org/
    • DDG Search Provider is a nice Gnome Shell Extension for searching the web from your Activities Screen
  • Enable minimize / maximize button sudo apt install gnome-tweaks
  • Install / Uninstall some native software, using Pop!_Shop
  • Customize your Keyboard Shortcuts
    • (minimize desktop) Hide All Normal Windows = Super + d
    • Launch Terminal = Super + r
    • Settings = Super + i
    • Home folder = Super + e
    • change SUPER to open applications instead of having to use Super + a
  • Install Enpass password manager and import / restore your backup
  • Install some themes using the Pling-Store and browse Top Rated Gnome projects
    • I recommend replacing stock cursor
  • Disable Show Active Hints to remove the orange border glow when you focus windows in the Tiling window manager icon in your panel
