    Default Help with Gnome running apps access

    This may seem a fundamentally basic question. But in Gnome I find it hard work accessing running applications. If I have 6 or so apps running and want to toggle between them, ATM I hit the Super key and click the corresponding image from the display.

    In KDE, I just tap on the app item in the panel and I'm there.

    Gnome 2 of course had a panel, but now that has gone and given that I don't want to use xfce or some fallback Gnome. Can anyone make a suggestion to make the whole Gnome desktop experience less laborious. I may be just missing something obvious....

    Thank you

    Hi
    Alt+tab then tab? I'm sure there are some extensions at
    https://extensions.gnome.org

    Better approach is installing gnome-shell-classic and activating all the
    extensions using activities ==> gnome tweak tool. Good old gnome desktop

    Code:
    sudo zypper in gnome-shell-classic
