Keyboard shortcuts in Unity?

Is there a shortcut key for accessing the menu bar of an application? (Not Ubuntu's menu.) I tried Alt and F10, but no luck. I don't want to access a specific menu, just the menu bar so I could use the arrows to go between the menus.

I'm using 11.04 Alpha-2.

For window menu, use Alt + Space. For e.g. File menu, just hold down Alt and see what letter is underlined. Example: Alt + F

These don't work, you might as well delete this answer. I meant the application's menu bar, not Ubuntu's. – Ram Rachum Feb 15 '11 at 15:57
