Reset GUI to install state - How??

I have to confess that I simply loathe the new interface.
I find it incredibly lumpy and awkward to navigate around, and worse of all it is way too easy to turn off stuff you cannot easily get back again.
Point in case, on our W7 64-bit system, I have somehow managed to get half the bits I need disappeared, and cannot find any way at all to reset the GUI to how it was at install.
It’s frankly a nightmare & right now sitting there unused because of the terrible interface

Some hints:

  1. Reset the default message box (pic-1)

  2. Open the Control Window, and close all other Workspaces. Now click as in Pic-2 and select the menu entry…

  3. See pic-3 to set some good factory setting.

  4. pic-4 to 7 show you where you can toggle many UI elements. Por pic-7, right click.
