    In fact, uid313 doesn't use it at all as he keeps saying he likes distro defaults and he doesn't like to change settings.

      When the GNOME Tweaks window is small it collapses the sidebar, this makes navigation much more cumbersome as you have to press the back button in the toolbar to bring you back to the section selector screen, then click the section to take you that section. It is twice amount of clicks, and also makes browsing and getting a glimpse or overview of things much more difficult.
      The workaround is to either run GNOME Tweaks as a maximized window, or resize the window until its big enough to trigger the responsive breakpoint that switches it from mobile to desktop mode.
      I just tried it and Alt+← goes back. This is what I always use to go back one level in any UI so this shrinking isn't a problem if you are keyboard friendly.

        uid313 is right. It took me until yesterday to realize why Tweaks was glitching on 3.34. Turned out the default window size is too small when it first opens. (1920x1080 resolution here). The solution is to either maximize the window or resize a little bigger.

        I'm still not sure how to get it to do that as the default behavior, so if anyone knows, do tell please.

        Regarding the new release, GNOME 3.34 is so damn fast it's scary. Year of the Linux desktop without a doubt arrived in 2019. Tell the historians I was here.

          Sounds like there should be a setting that signals you're on a desktop/non-desktop that prevents/enables the responsive layout?

            For most people at least, that's absolutely not true. In most cases you need at least a couple of GNOME extensions to have a functional and productive desktop, and you can't really manage extensions without Tweaks. For that reason alone I find myself using GNOME Tweaks much more often than I would like to, and I agree that it basically sucks. More precisely it feels like a dumping ground for tools and settings that should really be incorporated into the main user interface, but they never bothered to try to come up with a sufficiently well designed UI for them.

              Objectively not quite yet, albeit it's getting closer. The graphical stack (drivers etc.) is in a much better shape now but it's still a little bit of a mess, 3D-intensive software (games) may or may not work on Joe User's computer, the X11-Wayland transition is causing pains. Installing third party apps got a lot easier with snap and flatpak but there are still many rough edges to solve there too.

                You can manage extensions from GNOME Software or run gnome-shell-extensison-prefs

                  Thanks, I didn't know this.
                  But even with this, it still makes it more difficult to get an overview at a glimpse. It reduces the usability and user friendliness of the application. Every time you enter a section the menu disappear and the brain does an context switch.
