Dash to Panel is an icon taskbar for Gnome Shell. This extension moves the dash into the gnome main panel so that the application launchers and system tray are combined into a single panel, similar to that found in KDE Plasma and Windows 7+. A separate dock is no longer needed for easy access to running and favorited applications.

How do I embed my bottom left notification drawer into the panel like a system tray? Top Icons Plus
How do I disable the hot corner? No Topleft Hot Corner
How do I move the notifications to somewhere other than the top center? Panel OSD
How do I add transparency to the panel? Dynamic Panel Transparency
How do I change workspaces by scrolling the mouse wheel in the empty space? Top Panel Workspace Scroll
How do I display Minimize & Maximize buttons? In the Tweak Tool application, turn on
Windows > Titlebar Buttons > Minimize & Maximize.
Why can't I put the panel vertically on the left or right of the display? Gnome-shell and it's numerous extensions add widgets to the panel. These widgets have been designed using padding and absolute positioning assuming a horizontal layout. At this point in time, I don't think it is possible to allow for a vertical layout and still maintain any sort of reasonable compatibility with many of the other features of Gnome.
While this extension works well with most popular Gnome Shell themes, the following themes are known to have explicitly added custom styles for this extension:
This extension has been tested with Gnome 3.18+.
This extension manipulates the Gnome Main Panel, aka Top Bar. So, most other extensions which operate on the top bar should be compatible.
This extension could be even better with your help! Any items in the issue tracker labelled

Significant portions of code in this extension were derived from Dash-to-Dock.
Additional credits: This extension leverages the work for ZorinOS Taskbar (used in ZorinOS) to show window previews and allow the dash from Dash-to-Dock to be embedded in the Gnome main panel. Code to set anchor position taken from Thoma5/gnome-shell-extension-bottompanel. Pattern for moving panel contents based on Frippery Move Clock by R M Yorston. Ideas for recursing child actors and assigning inline styles are based on code from the extension StatusAreaHorizontalSpacing.
