    Now I have to right click on the upper left hand corner in order to

    If you have the answer please give a step by step as if you were
    addressing a clueless newbie... (you never know...)

    Hi
    You need to look at the gnome extension web page;
    https://extensions.gnome.org/

    Find the page with the workspace switcher and click on the link, top
    left, change the button to 'on' and it will install.

    Use the gnome-tweak-tool for control of your extensions. Or if on the
    webpage, click on the 'installed extensions' link.

    I'm pretty sure it's late now, but to regards to OP:

    Gnome-2 like? lolwut. Do you mean Mate, Cinnamon or Fall-back mode in G3? Kind of missing your point here.

    For the remainder of the posters: I would strongly recommend cinnamon. Fantastic alternative to Gnome 3's regular shell. The work they've been pumping into this is quite excellent. It is fluid and functions similarly to Gnome 2.

    Cheers

    How does it compare to the regular gnome 2 in 11.4, is it "finished"?
    Or to xfce in 12.1?

    Hmmm. Tough question. For something that is still in its infancy, I say it's quite well made and stable. Mind you, a most recent release seems to have broken the positioning for the workplace viewer however you can still easily swap workspaces with ctrl+alt+ left or right.

    In terms of general stability? I've had no major crashes, etc. I'm quite happy with it. Cairo-dock and docky seem to have issues with it, but that's not a big deal. It is possible to have two panels, etc. It is not quite as customizable as gnome 2 but each cinnamon update adds to its current set of features.

    Give it a go. See if you like it.
    Cheers

    Something to watch, I see.

    I'll see if I can install it on my training machine, at home I'm still
    using 11.4. :-)
