NAME
       gnome-control-center - Configure GNOME settings

SYNOPSIS
       gnome-control-center [OPTION...] [PANEL] [ARG...]

DESCRIPTION
       gnome-control-center is a graphical user interface to configure various aspects of GNOME.

       When run without arguments, the shell displays the overview, which shows all available
       configuration panels. The overview allows to open individual panels by clicking on them.
       It also has a search entry to find panels by searching keywords.

       It is also possible to specify a panel name as commandline argument to go directly to that
       panel. Individual panels may accept further arguments to specify which tab to open (for
       multi-tabbed panels) or which item to display (for panels with lists).

       Note that gnome-control-center is not meant to expose each and every setting that is
       available. The settings that can be found here represent what is considered useful and
       commonly needed options. For more exotic or uncommon options, you can look at
       gnome-tweak-tool or the gsettings commandline utility.
