Open the control panel and select "Internet Options", go to the "Advanced" tab, and click "Reset", then open IE.

Open "regedit.exe" from the "Start" button

Navigate to the following key: My Computer \ HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer

You should see a key "NoBandCustomize" with a value of 1. Either delete the key or change its value to 0.

Restart Internet Explorer . The "Menu Bar" option should now be available.

Let me know how it goes

Thanks swap_101982, I found and article about this too.  Unfortunately, editing the registry has been disabled, so I'm trying to fix that first, in order to try this (see post below).  Do you know of any non-registry editing way that this can be done?

For Suspction on any malicious software, try to scan system via Malwarebytes first.
Some malicious softwares disable registry editing.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I was able to turn it on by going the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) and under Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Internet Explorer I enabled the "Turn on menu bar by default" option.
