Or type the name of the program, or change the dock at the left of the
screen. You can just drag and drop programs into that list, and they’ll
stay in the order you put them. If you put your commonly-used programs
there, you’ll rarely have to use any other way of launching programs.
You should also examine the various gnome-shell-extension programs, and
especially the gnome-tweak-tool program, which allows you to change a
number of individual niggles.

Well, the accessibility icon (the picture of a person) in the top right
of the screen gives you access to large fonts. More control can be got
through the gnome-tweak-tool program.
Hope this helps,
