I recently downloaded blender to do some video editing. I was playing around with it and everything was going well. The next day when I opened Blender I couldn't navigate away from the starting screen. The top menu bar will change but that is pretty much it. I tried reinstalling but that didn't work. In the screen grab you can see I'm in movie clip editor (or at least I should be).
Simply change that top toolbar back to Info. That's the default for Blender. From there you have all the traditional menus. From the Info bar, you can select your preferred Workspace. You can use the Motion Tracking Workspace which is already setup with three Movie Clip Editor panes or you can create your own custom Workspace:
