Update:  I realized last night that this is actually the menu layout
from 12.04 (IIRC).

It must be somewhere in the config files, but I saved mine and
overwrote them with the defaults, and the menu is still in the 12.04
format - list of first level options, no split panel.

As much as I didn't like that format when was experimenting with Mint
18, it has grown on me and it works, unlike the 12.04 apps which are
obsolete and fail.

Thanks again.
