To refer to GNOME applications:
- **GNOME applications: <i>Files</i>, <i>Disks</i>, etc.**
- Use their short name as it appears in the menus when giving
instructions to be executed inside Tails.
GNOME applications that have a common noun as their name (like
<span class="application">Files</span> or
<span class="application">Disks</span> can be confusing when referred
to in the documentation.
*For example*:
Make sure to clarify that you are referring to an application (and
not, for example a set of files or disks):
- *For example*:
- In the title of sections
- When first referring to the application in a section
- *Use*:
- The <span class="application">Files</span> browser
- The <span class="application">Disks</span> utility
Otherwise, use their short name as it appears in the menus when giving
instructions to be executed inside Tails.
- *For example*:
- Open */live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/dotfiles* in *Files*.
- Prepend "*GNOME*" when giving instructions to be executed outside of
Tails.
Prepend "*GNOME*" when giving instructions to be executed outside of
Tails.
*For example*:
- Install GNOME Disks in Debian.

- Install <span class="application">GNOME Disks</span> in Debian.
