Welcome to LQ. I see what you mean - you want something like the Windows start menu and it gave you the gnome menu-bar ... which, yes, is the default. The horizontal bars top and bottom of the screen are called "panels".

rt-click on the panel, "add to panel" > select "main menu". That do?

Thats the Linux Mint 10 menu...for the gnome version. Lxde has a different menu.
