I just installed Ubuntu 12.04. I switched to Gnome classic from unity as I'm more comfortable with the former. However, I couldn't find where the panel setting are. Usually a drop down menu appears on right-clicking the top and bottom panels. But it doesn't happen now.

I need the panel settings so as to auto hide the panels (as my netbook screen is quite small!) as well as to add the "system monitor" applet to the panel which is really useful.

Where can I find the panel settings?

Just Alt-Right click works. No need for Super –  SkaveRat Nov 14 '12 at 8:18
    
i was getting the same issue, but Alt + Super + Right Click works for me. But after i edited the Panel settings, i unchecked the "Expand" option, and now panel shrunk to accommodate only the items present on the panel, there is no "empty" space on the panel where i right click and get the Preferences back to enable "expand" again. Only options i get are to move the item on the panel and remove it from the panel. there is no way to activate "add to Panel". plz help!!! –  weima Dec 25 '12 at 23:10

i can verify that alt-rightclick does not work. you need the full super-alt-rightclick chord. –  Martin DeMello Mar 6 '13 at 0:41

Hold in ALT while right-clicking.

Tested in Ubuntu 12.04 with GNOME Classic.

This does not work in Oneric -- if you did try it and it worked for you, you should specify your distro and version. –  Amanda Jun 25 '12 at 17:13

FYI, the super-key mentioned above is the window-key. –  harisibrahimkv Jul 25 '12 at 23:24
