After Installing XFCE desktop on Archlinux, Now time to configuring it. On XFCE is very easy because most all configuration done via GUI.
1. Configuring XFCE Panel.
By default there are two panel at top & the bottom. You can modify panel by right click on panel -> Panel -> Panel preferences.
You can set what type of your click on desktop.
You can set what icons to available on desktop, File/Launcher icons type is default and recommended if you want to use right click like windows, another option minimize & none will make right click like fluxbox or openbox, no option on there, just application.
3. Enabling Compositing (even if you don't have compiz)
If you want to make window manager transparent, and also other widget like screenlets have transparency, you can enable it on Windows Manager Tweaks, open Settings -> Window Manager Tweaks. Choose Compositor, then enable it (check it)

4. Configure Display Resolution & Settings on XFCE
Open Settings -> Display, Now you can set the resolution easily.
And for Display Settings,Open Settings -> Display Settings.
This for setting up external display (projector or monitor), it usually available on there if you connected it.
