Using macros I defined a custom Menu Bar for my app.  I then defined an AutoExec Macro that has these three lines:
SetValue          Item:[Application].[MenuBar]  Expression:"MT_MainMenu"
RunCommand   Command:WindowHide
Openform         Form:frmtree      View:Form      WindowMode: Normal

The result is almost exactly what I wanted.  When the app is opened the user is presented with 'frmTree' which they can use to navigate thru the app.  Also, my menu bar appears at the top fo each form and gives them access to other functions not contained in frmTree.  

Now that I have suppressed all of the system menu's I would like to add one of the 'system' options to my menu.  That function is 'Print'.  I send most of my reports to the screen to be previewed before printing.  However, now that I have defined my own menu's, the 'Print' is no longer available.  How can I add print to one of my custom menu's.  I created these menu's with Macro's using the 'Addmenu' option.  They were not created using the toolbar/menu designer.  I don't see any way to include system options in these menu's. How can I do this?
