This question already has an answer here:

I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 and added the classic gnome so it would look like ubuntu 10.04 ( I liked that classic look better).

Today I accidentally deleted everything from the panel. Since I am quite new to Ubuntu I now can't get it back as it was.

Can anyone tell me how to get it back to look like as it was before?

If you want to add things to the panel in gnome-classic environment you have to press Alt+Super=Windows key + right click on the panel.
