Adding Application Icons to the Favorites Tab

Working with applications in Easy Mode is simplicity itself. You click a tab and then click an icon to launch an application. Chapter 8, "Getting More Linux Applications," discusses adding and removing applications in general to the Eee PC. The following provides the steps for adding the additional applications to Easy Mode.

The Favorites tab is the Easy Mode method of adding additional applications icons to the desktop, but its functionality is limited. You can add icons for most preinstalled programs to the Favorites tab by clicking the Customize application icon (see Figure 4.1). Simply select in the Available Favorites list the application you want to add, and click the Add button to add it to the Current Favorites list on the right. The Up and Down buttons let you move the currently selected application icon up and down the list, which sets the order in which it appears on the Favorites tab.

Unfortunately, if you want to add applications that aren't listed here, you need to start editing configuration files and creating icons, covered next. You can add such icons to any tabs, you are no longer limited to Favorites.
