Getting Back To The Ubuntu Menu.

Not getting used to the new Ubuntu Launcher ? Welcome! to the club .
The new launcher may hold shortcuts to your favorite programs , files and folders , but it is also a security concern. The 'Files and Folders' launcher includes your recently viewed files but there's no 'Clear recent Documents' option. The launcher may add some glamor to your system but it obviously includes a processing overhead.

Getting back to the classic Ubuntu menu is easier than you would probably think. Just choose 'ubuntu classic ( no effects )' as your session the next time you reach the log in window. ( Now,how do I capture a screen shot before logging in ? Let me know if you know a way out).

But this would obviously work if your system asks for a password at startup and you do not get to log in automatically.You won't have to do this every time you log in. Just whenever you feel like making a switch.

To set a default session , go to 'System' -> 'Administration' -> 'Login Screen' and select the session you want.
