    Tweak tool shows installed extensions.
    I have found two ways to install extensions
    - In a browser from page https://extensions.gnome.org/
    - In Ubuntu Software from Add-ons/Shell Extensions

    Thanks, was able to add Places but Applications Menu would not install. But this is the daily build of 17.10 so not everything will work.

    Ubuntu 17.10 archive have its own list of available gnome-shell-extension-* packages.
    Its the main source for installing them (checked with synaptic), as they are installed into a specific path (/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/)
    Extensions from the gnome-shell.org url are installed into an other path: .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ , so avoid installing/upgrading these extensions from that url if they also come with the archive list.
    (aka, dont have the same extension installed twice (both paths) with different version)

    Thanks, I tried installing synaptic, but it won't open! Too many bugs in this daily build.

    I suppose you are using a wayland session; with x11 synaptic works well

    Greetings,
    Synaptic works fine on my Gnome Wayland system

    From Terminal
    xhost +si:localuser:root
    sudo synaptic

    This is a bit non conventional but seems to be the current work around until some things get fixed.

    What's the advantage using synaptic?
    Most users will probably use Ubuntu Software to install programs.
    To download applications using a browser will probably also be more common.
    Both this methods install the extensions in .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/

    Speaking just for myself, I can't remember using Gnome Software ever.
    Not a fan of the new package managers at all... as far as advantage goes>>>maybe a better term would be preference is all.
    With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.
