Accessing the Menu Bar in Emacs

Have you ever been wondering how to access the Emacs menu bar, when using Emacs in console mode? The answer is easy – press F10 or type M-x menu-bar-open(both methods work in X as well, of course).

Although the menu bar is rarely used by seasoned Emacs veterans, exploring it is a great way to get started with the capabilities of the new modes, so being able to access it is generally a good thing.
