Thanks for your feedback!

You're right there's no "About Kali", the only about window is "About XFCE". XFCE is the default desktop environment for Kali. And after you clicked on "About XFCE", you have a window with all the information about XFCE. That's expected.

This being said when you open the web browser for the first time, you have a "Welcome to Kali Linux" in full page, where you can click on "Documentation", and there you have it. Otherwise, head to, the official website.

We also have community support forums on or on IRC with the #kali-linux channel on, please post your questions there.
