unity

Is there an equivalent of the Windows "Start Menu" in Ubuntu from where all installed programs can be easily accessed?

Best Answer

  • Equivalent of windows start menu in Ubuntu is Dash. Press Super key (AKA Windows key on a Windows-style keyboard) on the keyboard to open up dash. There you can search for installed applications, document, directories and also you can search for online materials (like games, musics, news, etc).

    Dash

    You can directly access the application lens by pressing Super+A (ie: Windows + A). Through that you can access installed, recently used applications.
