    Question Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Gnome Class "Places"

    I's there any way for me to switch back to the old style showing under "Places"? Now, when I click on "Places", this is what I see:



    Thanks!

    Oh, there's absolutely nothing about this menu that's "confusing" at all. My question is, and it's just my preference, how do I get it to look like the old "Places" menu again, like this example from my laptop?

    When you reach a certain number of bookmarks, they stop appearing directly in the menu and appear under a Bookmarks submenu.

    I don't think you can change this attribute, but you can look in gconf-editor and dconf-editor and see if there's any item there that changes the number of bookmarks you need in order for it to appear in the submenu.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    I also, would like to do away with the task bar down the side, and revert back to "the look of" version 10.10, I think that is what (mdavis1231) wants

    You were exactly right. I removed the Google Drive "bookmark", and now it looks the same as my laptop again. Apparently, there's a limit of 8 or 9 folders that you can have "bookmarked", then, like you said above, it compacts and they appear under a Bookmarks submenu. Thanks!!!
