The future is now, GNOME Shell is here

Menu with iconsSince various months the default GNOME desktop will hide the icons in almost every menu items. This choice should reduce the clutter in the user interface and give it a more uniform and simpler looking.

Everyone who wants to restore the menu icons could execute a simple command in a terminal window:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menus-have-icons true

The change is immediately applied and doesn’t require any restart.

Menu without iconsTo restore the default look by hiding the menu icons you could simply execute the following command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menus-have-icons false
