Internet Explorer 8 Has No Menu Bar

Using Internet Explorer 8 today, I found that it has no menu bar on top. I wanted to change some of its settings, but how? I tried right clicking on different areas, pulling down the system pop-up menu, and looking for hidden context-sensitive spot. After playing with it for a while, I found that it does have a menu bar; just hidden. One way to bring it up is to push the "Alt" key on the keyboard.

Is there any other ways to bring up the menu bar?

Right-click on the area between tabs and the options on the right, click Menu Bar and it will stay there.

Thanks for the tip, Leonidas. I found that if you click too close to the navigation bar, you'll get the navigation bar pop-up menu. And if you click too close to the tab bar, you'll get the tab bar pop-up menu. You really have to click several times in the right place to get the menu bar pop-up menu.

Thanks, Leonidas! It's extraordinary that Microsoft have wanted to keep this so secret that they haven't bothered mentioning this in their help text. After I discovered I couldn't do anything other than navigate to new pages using IE8 (a search for "reload page" or "refresh page" brought up nothing in their online help) I gave up on IE8 and used Firefox instead.
