Add top menu of "File, Edit, View, Message..." to Windows Chrome browser bar

A Mac user I support who has just started using a Windows computer would like to add the top Chrome Menu bar of "Chrome, File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, People, Window, Help" to the top of his Windows Chrome browser just like how the Mac Chrome Browser is configured (see the screenshot).

Is there any way of doing this?

That cannot be done in Chrome. The corresponding menu in Chrome is the 3 vertical dots top right.

Windows 10 Edge is very similar.

Internet Explorer has a menu (not along the top).

So your user will need to adapt to the different way.

The MAC enforces the top menu line; Windows does not.

No, not in Windows.

That said, I've had that question asked many times by clients. There is no way to have a menu at the "top" of Google Chrome in Windows as it appears on a MAC. You can, however, use shortcut keys if the user doesn't like, or has problems, clicking on the vertical 3 dots at the top right-hand side of Chrome.

Encourage such users to learn 1 simple shortcut key.

Pressing Alt+F brings up Chromes Menu Bar

From there they can click the Menu Item they want, or press the underlined letter with the keyboard to activate options.

Note also the Ctrl+ Shortcuts in the above graphic which can be used in Chrome anytime, without having to press Alt-F.

Standard windows shortcuts such as Ctrl+C to copy and Ctrl+V to paste etc. also apply and work in Chrome,

Hope that's helpful.
