From a discussion on Forums.Embarcadero.com

The File/Open and File/Exit actions have been swapped. That is a known issue
related to the IDE's copy protection:

Action event handlers for the File|Open and File|Exit menu handlers are swapped

This happens when any non-Embarcadero files have been placed in the IDE's
\bin folder, where they do not belong. Only official Embarcadero files are
allowed in that folder.

This issue has existed since at least XE6, and someone always manages to
encounter it in each new release.

Have you installed any 3d part Library? Check in your bin folder if there're dll's not related to Embarcadero Delphi installation.

From Embarcadero Customer Support:

Only files provided by Embarcadero may reside in the bin folder. Common files which are mistakenly copied to the bin folder are third party components and database drivers (for example sqlite3.dll or libmysql.dll). The easiest way to determine if this might be your problem is to list files by timestamp and look for files created before or after the release of your product.

Is this an old project made in older Delphi or project made in Seattle?

Indeed I had a DLL (one of mine) copied in the Delphi BIN directory
After removing, the problem disappeared !
