How do I get the File menu back in Explorer in Windows Server 2008?

How do I get the File menu back permanently in Explorer in Windows Server 2008?  Yes, I can Right-click and get some of the same actions, but I want the File menu bar across the top (since it contains the Tools-Options meny which is not in the context menu).  I have tried right-mouse clicking along the top to hopefully get Properties but nothing at all happens.

Interestingly enough, the Administrator account has the File menu in its Explorer. I just can't figure out how to add it to my own login. See the attached screen shot.  Googling for "explorer menu" is like googling for the word "the"... :-)  I'm sure the solution is rediculously simple -- if you know where to look. Thanks!

Click on Organize -> Layout  -> and click on Menu Bar.  I am pretty sure that is how I did it in Vista (same kernel). ... Thinkpads_User

Try hitting F11, make sure it isnt in a Full Screen Mode.... (not sure if that evenm applies to Server 2008, but fairly harmless...).....

The Organize -> Layout  -> and click on Menu Bar worked great!  Thank you!
F11 simply made it full screen, and the ALT key does not bring up the missing menu bar (at least in Windows Server 2008).
Thanks to all for the quick thoughts!

This solution worked great for Windows 2008 Server. Simple things can be elusive to find sometimes! :-)
