How to Install Classic Gnome App Menu in Ubuntu 18.04 / Higher

This quick tutorial is going to show you how to install the classic style Gnome application menu in Ubuntu 18.04, and higher.

There’s a Gnome Shell extension called Gno-Menu. It is a traditional styled full featured Gnome-Shell apps-menu, that aims to offer all the essentials in a simple uncluttered intuitive interface.

Simply open Ubuntu Software, search for and install Gno-Menu.

Then you’ll see the new application menu in top-left corner. Click to expand the app menu, and click the gear button (see the top pic.) can bring up the settings dialog.

    Thank you. This was very helpful. This actually works, and just as I’d expect it to – unlike the gnome shell extensions I just wasted the last half-hour fruitlessly trying to get going. Really, this ought to be part of the basic install.
