It looks like you are using a Window Manager with a tall top bar. I use Defcon-IV for example, and it has a small top area. You can install more Window Manager styles by running: sudo apt-get install xfwm4-themes To toggle viewing the top menu items, just hit ctrl+m in Thunar. Here is Thunar on my computer. You can change the icon size by going to View ...
