Then you are not a part of GNOME's target audience, and you should use 
something else.  That is why options exist.  KDE, for instance, has a 
plethora of options for every aspect of the desktop I can think of.

Perhaps it's time to try other options.  KDE has a large following for a 
reason.  XFCE is also a wonderful desktop.  You might find that you 
enjoy one of them.
