Mistakes are in the eye of the beholder? Try System>Preferences, then
play with the settings under Windows, Themes, Menus & Toolbars, and
Fonts. Then you could right click on your panels and play with the
properties. Just don't delete the panel until you are confident on how
to make another one!
If you are afraid of really screwing things up, create another user, and
mess with the settings there. However, you should be just fine in your
own. One thing to remember is that you can really make your system
memory intensive with some options. (So it may not be ideal to have 16
virtual desktops with individual wallpaper.)
