I installed the maximus and the gnome-shell-extension-window-buttons to get Unity like buttons and after that menu bar options like File, Edit and View is not showing up. So I removed the maximus and gnome-shell-extension-window-buttons, but there was no change.

I tried all the shortcuts like Alt + F, Alt + F10 and many more.


Just open dconf-editor, if you do not have install it sudo apt-get install dconf-editor. Look for "org" there uncheck the "enabled in the global menu". Restart shell or the system and you will get back the menu.
