Hi dropframe

first if you are using Kali 1
S T O P !!! NOW!!!!
the current is 2.0


next
what desktop manager are you using ?
Gnome3 or the non default KDE4
or one of the other desktop managers

i am guessing Gnome3
BUT!!!
with using a VM this might be the failsafe "fall back" gnome shell

so
what are you using

gnome3
on the left is a tool bar
on the bottom is the tool menu ( show applacations)
this brings up a rather crappy "windows metro" tile set -- i hate that with a passion ( gnome3's metro look that is)

the OS system tools are in there

or

in the on/ off menu ( top right)
the tool options are in there

this is a NORMAL but tweaked Gnome3 desktop ( gnome2 was GREAT - 3 is crap)

the power settings menu from the tool options in the user tools ( top right)
