You're right, in most cases a web search is the first thing to try, however, after clicking on that link I got "Page Not Found" error.

On Kali site, in their FAQ page kali.org/docs/general-use/xfce-faq/ I found this:
Q: How can I get a Kali Linux image with GNOME instead of XFCE?

A: Just download the Kali GNOME image from https://www.kali.org/downloads/

And
Q: I tried XFCE and I really like it but I still would like to switch back to GNOME. How can I do that?

A: You can run apt update && apt install kali-desktop-gnome in a terminal session. Next time you login you can choose “GNOME” in the session selector in the top right hand corner of the login screen.

So you might try either one of those solutions.

Hope this helps! :)
