    Left alt key menu -- can we disable it?


    I've searched for this with duckduckgo and on this site (700+ hits).

    The issue is where you can't see the top window menu (File Edit View etc) unless you press the left alt button.

    Is there a way around this, so that the window menu is always visible?

    win version 2004 os build 19041.985

    :)
