Hi Hamid,

In Windows 8, there are two versions of Internet Explorer. The Metro version
doesn't have the menus that you are looking for. The Desktop version is the
full version, and that's what you want to always use. You can set IE to
always load the Desktop version. The following FS link provides a better
explanation and instructions of how to make those changes to always run the
full desktop version.

Hi There Folks,

Poking around with Windows 8, I couldn't find a way to land on the menues in
any application. For instance, in Internet Explorer, I used to press Alt to
activate the menues and then do something from there. I am just looking for
the replacement for that majic Alt key stroke!

Thank you.
