one of the great things about XFCE is that it is very customizable, One of the first things I do is add a panel at the top so I can have a separate panel for launching apps. (I set this one to auto hide) Also I usually add the weather app to the bottom panel. and set the clock to 24 hour time. All done very simply with right clicks on the original panel.
here are a couple of web pages with good hints on how to customize your desktop.

and this one is good also.

Just google around you'll find plenty more.
Enjoy!
