I am new to MATE, and I've noticed some differences from Ubuntu 14.04/GNOME. For example, the Panel. I want to see what I am logged in as. There is no name in the top right corner any more, and in Users & Groups I see no option to display it. Can I set it elsewhere?


You can go to Control Center > About me

Or you could begin logging out, and a windows will appear saying

You are currently logged in as your name

  • That way I thought of myself. One can also look in Caja and look for the first entry, many ways to find out. But I want to see it, as I change user all the time at this stage of installation – DJNJ Sep 10 '17 at 11:12
