 As dCore is modular and extensible, installing or switching [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_manager|Window Managers]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_environment|Desktop Environments]] is simple. Depending on the Window Manager, additional system monitors, launchers and panels (task bar) may be added. Users who desire a built-in panel can switch to Window Managers like Fluxbox, IceWM or JWM, alternatively install a Desktop Environment. As dCore is modular and extensible, installing or switching [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_manager|Window Managers]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_environment|Desktop Environments]] is simple.

-LXDE notes: LXDE can be modified to use Openbox's OnDemand menusee [[dcore:Migrating from FLWM to LXDE|Migrate from FLWM to LXDE]]. LXDE displays a popup error at boot, which delays desktop loading, on dCore-jessie and dCore-wily. This is an unresolved bug reported in the LXDE mailing list, not dCore specific. Alternatively import these for a similar LXDE experience: openbox, obconf, lxpanel or tint2 (nice built-in panel configuration GUI), leafpad, lxterminal and pcmanfm. This provides a modular setup with an integrated OnDemand menu. Right click [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications#lxpanel|lxpanel crashing]] may be experienced.+
