The Red Hat Graphical User Interface (GUI)

Once you sign in, the Red Hat graphical user interface (GUI) will load, as shown in Figure 195. This is in fact one of several possible GUIs.

Click on the red hat at the lower left corner to see the menu. Notice toward the middle of the task bar, four squares are shown with one highlighted. These correspond to individual workspaces. For example, if you open a word processor in the current workspace, click one of the other squares and open another program there, each workspace will contain its own programs. So, it’s like having four monitor screens available.


Figure 195: One of many Red Hat GUIs

Click on the red hat to see the menu, or one of the four squares to switch between virtual workspaces.
