This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Could you rephrase your question? I am not sure what you are asking. Also, would you provide some details (e.g., Ubuntu 10.10)? – Kory Wnuk Jun 4 '11 at 23:34

If you want to remove the global menu and use the menus directly in the windows, like in previous Ubuntu versions, assuming you are using 11.04, you just need to remove the package indicator-appmenu by typing

sudo apt-get remove indicator-appmenu

into a console (and probably reentering your session).
