Alternative launcher: nwg-menu

If you’ve recently parted ways with Windows, you may miss the menu button. This launcher will help you acclimatize. It displays the system menu with simplified freedesktop main categories. It also provides the search entry, to look for installed application on the basis of .desktop files, and for files in XDG user directories. You may pin-up applications above the categories list. In the bottom-right corner of the window you’ll also see a set of buttons: lock screen, logout, restart and shutdown.
