Hmm overly asked question and answered many times already. Search is your friend my friend, but to quick start you:

In the menu: Display -> UI Elements -> Restore UI elements

There are plenty of options in that menu to customize the user interface the way you want it.

Here's a handy keyboard shortcut to turn off all ui elements as well: ctrl+space

post a screen shot of your maya layout and also make sure you are not in component mode otherwise you wont be able to select objects.

Hello,

In the bar below the meny bar, there is an option called Select by Object Type. In the Buttons next to it are the select tools. Click on Select Surface Object and voila, back to normal
