2. Switch Back To Classic Icons 


Still on the Preferences, go to Interface > Icons > select Legacy instead of Symbolic> OK.

3. Switch Back To Ungrouped Icons


Still on the Preferences, under Interface move to Toolbox submenu > uncheck Use tool groups > OK.

4. Switch To Single Window Mode

In case you accidentally clicked some buttons and GIMP window got divided into three pieces, you can turn it back into one by going to menubar Windows > give check mark Single Window Mode.
