Hello everyone !

I am completely new to Fedora (Linux in general) but I do like the experience so far. Tinkering with it reminds me of my first Windows 3.11 computer.

Anyway, I was able to install all the updates, some software and teak tool so I can actually use desktop but I am missing something like Windows Task Bar or MacOS dock.

Is there anything like this available for Fedora 26 ?

Welcome to Fedora community :-) Hope you'll have fun and you stick around.

Regarding the dock. You can either use dedicated dock software such as docky or plank , or you can install Gnome Shell extension Dash to Dock which simply converts that list of apps on the left hand side to dock. Pick and choose :-)

Installing software should be simple as finding it within the Software application or with:

sudo dnf install plank

Plank will not work if you are using Wayland.
