Maya user basic question

Hey yall, trying to learn Blender.
So super basic stuf:
When pressing G, I get a weird move/float behavior.
I dont want to press another key to restrict the move. (pressing x,y,z)
Is there a way to get the controller icon, so I can control the move orientation
the second I start it?
Same with rotate and scale.
I’d like to use the regular transform icon.
