Use gnome-tweak-tool. Go to 'Shell > Arrangement of buttons on the titlebar' and select 'All'.

I know in MS Windows you can right-click on a file/folder and select properties to get a lot of useful info on that file/folder. Is there any way to find out file/folder properties? Also, what was very helpful with that is that it gave you the absolute pathname to said file/folder. This would be extremely helpful. (I don't know where the Terminal app resides in Ubuntu, but if I could find out that would help me create a shortcut to it on the desktop).
The full path is given on the first tab.
The default Ubuntu terminal application is called gnome-terminal. To find out where it lives you can use the which command:
rob@ubuntu:~$ which gnome-terminal
You can delete the unwanted session profiles. Hit ALT+F2 and enter 'gksudo nautilus' to open a file browser window with root privileges.
I found out that by installing Gnome 3, it also installs 2 versions of Gnome Classic. I see these when I log out and can select which shell to log in to. I made myself admin, but I want a standard user on here that can ONLY access the Gnome 3 shell when they log in instead of having the option for Unity, Unity 2D, Gnome Classic 1, and Gnome Classic 2. Is there a way to do this?
Then browse to /usr/share/xsessions and delete your unwanted session profiles.
This will remove the sessions for all users.
