I turned on my computer expecting it to appear and function as it normally does, seeing as I did NOT approve any kind of updates, changes or revisions to any software installed on it since it's last use.
Lo and behold, I log in to the most janky looking desktop I've seen in ages, with no way to undo the operation that wasn't even supposed to be happening in the first place. Attached is a picture of the OLD launcher/desktop I used to have, and also the same one I'm trying to get back to.
I can't decide which one is more annoying & is pushing me more back towards Windows, the fact that I NEVER approved such a blatant and major change to my computer, or the fact that it's so blipping ugly & dysfunctional to use.
I've tried looking for ways to restore it, but all the links I can find only instruct how to install a completely new desktop environment all together(KDE/Gnome/etc) -- which is NOT what I want.
Here is a picture of the repulsive desktop I'm being bombarded with now:
This is extremely frustrating and unnecessary, because instead of simply asking me would I like to upgrade my desktop theme, where I could answer yes or no, now I have to take time and productivity out of my day to deal with this mess.
PLEASE help me revert the appearance and functionality of my desktop to it's original state?
