Somehow in the past 24 hours, I have only a basic menu for the Apple Menu and my early 2011 MBP running Yosemite 10.10.1 also always starts up in the Simple Finder. I especially miss the Recent Items in the Apple Menu. No idea what happened.
When I login as a different user the Apple menu is "normal". How do I repair the broken user Apple menu? Both user accounts I have are admin accounts. I tried turning off Parental Controls for the affected user account but Simple Finder persists 😟
