Yes, that is very well possible, although I have no experience with
MATE. Have you looked at Gnome Classic [1] as a possible alternative?

I think the Classic view comes with Gnome 3 and uses their newer
technologies but looks more like Gnome 2. If you have any room for
compromise, it might be worth your time.

The link above has instructions. I think you can select the Classic
view via the little session gear in the GDM login screen.

Sorry about the experience you are having. Your frustration is the
reason why many folks still use Winblows, but Linux will ultimately
give you a lot more freedom. You are paying a steep price right now.

Kind regards
