 +====== Getting Started ======
  
 +The panel will usually be started automatically as part of your Xfce session when you start the Xfce Desktop Environment. To manually start the panel, you can run ''​xfce4-panel''​ in a terminal.
 +
 +When the panel is started for the first time it will give you the following options: ​
 +
 +? Use default config
 +! This will import the default panel configuration with most of the default panel plugins. This gives a good starting point to edit and create your own configuration.
 +? One empty panel
 +! This will give you one empty panel window, useful if you already know what sort of configuration you want.
 +
 +<note tip>If an old Xfce 4.6 panel configuration is found on your system, then there is an additional option available to migrate the old panel layout to the new panel configuration in ''​xconf'',​ called **Migrate old config**</​note>​
 +
 +Once you have selected an option, your panel(s) will appear. Read more about changing the [[preferences|configuration of the panel]] and the various plugins available in the other sections of the panel documentation.
