The clock in the middle is driving me batty and I can't get it to move to the right side of the screen where I would like it. No other log in works for me except GNOME Classic so I'm sticking with that--unfortunately, that means that none of the GNOME 3 extensions I've installed fix this issue.

There's no option to unlock or move if I right click it :( How can I move this thing??

Good question this was bugging me as well. Whoever decided upon this Alt+Rightclick feature should be shot in the knees. I mean seriously, how unintuitive CAN you make things?? – fgysin Oct 19 '11 at 13:35

Hold Alt (or Windows/Super/Meta+Alt depending on your configuration) and right click the clock. Then you can access the panel menu for it (move/remove).

The same is true for adding widgets, creating new panels, etc.

None of the shortcuts work for me on gnome-shell 3.6 running Ubuntu 13.04. Any tips? – Esteban Oct 9 '13 at 23:53
