This time I going to demonstrate how to restore missing menu bar in Ubuntu 14.04 or beyond versions.
If you have installed latest Ubuntu version, you may experience that menu bar of each applications appears on global menu bar which is on the top of the screen. This is really annoying when need to browse menu items. Fortunately after 14.04 release, it has been included feature called local menu. Let’s look at how to enable it, with 3 steps without installing any software.
