Using GNOME Tweak Tool to disable the 'Application Menu' option in the 'Top Bar' section (reference: https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/06/tweal-tool-gnome-application-menu-top-bar) is no more working in Ubuntu 20.04.

How do I get the same effect now?

You can remove the application menu using the Remove App Menu extension. You will not miss any Application Menu items (e.g. "Preferences, ...): since a few versions of Gnome Shell, these moved back to where they belong: the application window itself.

Next to removing the application menu, much more about the topbar can be configured with the Activities Configurator extension, which is around for a long time and very well maintained.
