a short cut on the desktop??

I am trying to be familiar with gnome 3,
So I installing from debian testing the gnome 3,
It seems good, but sometimes I am lost, for example, I want to put a file on the Desktop, like drag it from the usb to the screen!! as usual, it didn't work !!!

another case I used to add button on the bar just by clicking on the topbar menu to add it, the right click is not working ??!!

How to enable it?? is it possible??
thanks for help

Gnome3 does not use desktop icons.
They decided no icons on your desktop looks clean.

If you want shortcuts you can open your widget menu (mouse upper left corner)
start typing the name of your program. It wil appear. Drag the icon to the bar on the left and voila. a shortcut.

Another way is using: GnomeTweakTool. You can use this to enable desktop icons again.
