I just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04. In my previous version, the title, status, and the "File ..." menu were all bundled together in a neat little bar for every maximized window.

Now they are all separate, and as you can see they are taking up a huge amount of screen real estate. Is there any way to get some of it back?

Two really big bars 2 big bars

Three really big bars! 3 big bars
