In Windows 7, when you open up My Computer, is there a way to have the standard menu available?  File, Edit, etc.?

Hi,

when you hit the Alt-Key the menu is shown.
I don't know if you can enable it permanently though.

Hope that helps,
Frank

In Computer or Windows Explorer, Organize -> Layout -> check Menu Bar and it will be permanent.

Nice answer.  That is exactly what I was looking for.  Some things should be left the same, like the Menu Bar.
