I mean, KDE definitely has a lot of settings, and sometimes it's hard to find them or they might not be where you expect. But that one is literally in the same place you said it was in Xfce, so I'm not sure why you couldn't find it.

That's not at all what it looks like on the version of KDE on that laptop.

KDE was beautiful first time when I run Linux. But after 10 mins of fooling around KDE, I found it not really handy. So I switched to xfce. It is more user-friendly.

PS: I was told that Remix OS is pretty nice.

Were you using KDE 5? It may be different there. Or possibly with an older version of KDE 4. Anyway, your point was valid about KDE options being sometimes hard to find. I guess it's the price you pay for having so many of them. I don't mind working through that and figuring out where it all is, because I like having all the configurability, and you generally only have to figure it out once.

Distro depends as well, some add too much to Xfce and you'd think it's KDE.

I'm a happy KDE user. Currently seems to be very stable. Faster than Gnome. I see a lot of complaints from others about so many settings being available. Well, you don't have to twiddle all of them. :-) I don't change any settings, it's good right out of the box!

I've finally grown fond of KDE5 with the release of 5.6.2. In my little usage so far, seems well and away a big stability improvement from 5.5.x...although it may just be me.
