    Question Removing the mac-style File/Edit/etc menu bar in 11.10 ?

    I booted off the livecd in 11.10, and overall I like what I see. That said, I can't stand the mac-style permanent File/Edit menu bar at the top of the screen. I prefer the classic style of putting that menu in each window.

    Is there a way to do this?

    It's the global menu.

    There is a bug report in progress to have this only for maximized Windows.

    Global menu...got it.

    So will this fix still apply to 11.10?

    Edit: looks like a yes.

    I rather liked the mac-style global menu at the top of the page. Comming from Windows 7, I thought that I would not like it. After using 11.04, I got used to it and rather liked it. Now, 11.10 seems to have changed it. I found this....

    About mid-way down the page their are some commands to address this.

    Hi, i was able to remove the piece of horse manure that some refer to as global menu but is there a way to get the "File", "Edit" etc menus to the topmost panel of each window:



    Thanks
