Hi,

How do I open the xemacs menu with the keyboard? (like ALT+F in Windows to open the &File menu).

Thanks.

The key for opening the Menu is kep in the variable menu-accelerator-modifiers.
You can check that variable while typing
Control + h
and then either
v (for variable)
a (for apropos)

Witth a good chance this key is bound to super on Linux and super should be the Windows key.

I still don't understand...
I'll try and explain again what exactly I want:
For example, I want to save the file ("buffer") I am working on. Of course I can use Ctrl+X,Ctrl+S, but I want to do another way: from the menu (but without using the mouse).
As an analogy, in notepad I can press Alt+F (this opens the File menu), then S (for Save).
How can I do this in xemacs?

As written this is supposed to work the same in Xemacs. Howerver if you are unsure you should check if  a certain variable is set properly. So you type
C-h menu-accelerator-modifiers
and there a Alt or so should show.
