This question already has an answer here:

I have just installed the ubuntu on my machine, I heard every thing is possible with linux,

I found the scrollbar is very complex, and hard to use,

Is there is any way to disable it? and put it as in normal look?

If you want to get back overlay bar, enter following command:

gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode normal

Enter following command in terminal to disable overlay scrollbar:

gsettings reset com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode 

or you can visit Linuxicle.
