The gnome 3 classic’s bottom panel looks not useful to me. I do not use it. How to remove the bottom panel in gnome 3 classic?

That bottom panel is from the “Window List” plugin.

The gnome 3 classic package depends on that plugin package on CentOS 7 as far as I checked.

And Gnome 3 classic uses it as a required plugin and ignores user settings even if it is disabled.

A dirty fix is to just remove the directory for the plugin:

# rm -r /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/window-list@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com

If you want it back later, you may re-install that plugin’s package.

# yum reinstall gnome-shell-extension-window-list

Hover over a blank part of the bottom panel. Press Ctrl + Super + Right Click. Press delete/remove this panel.


Nice trick! Please also note that this is available only after certain version of Gnome 3 classic (I am not aware of which though).
