I'm using GNOME Shell and have some questions about customization that I think will be cool to try. For example, the Messaging Tray shows only the icon of the program (Dropbox, Google Chrome, etc), and when you got the mouse hovering over it, it shows the icon AND the name; for example Icon + Icon Name. Is it possible to always show only the icon or always show the icon + icon name?
I really think this status bar can have more things, like shortcuts, or something else. Is it possible to manually add something to it?
