Windowed Applications do not have the traditional File, Edit, View, and etcetera. This usually sits at the top of the Application, under the Title bar.

    What is your current MATE panel layout? Please add screenshot from MATE Tweak (mate-tweak, Panel tab) or output of gsettings get org.mate.panel default-layout to the question. – N0rbert Apr 26 '19 at 11:33

    The Familiar layout do not have global application menu on the top MATE Panel. You can compare it with Contemporary layout to understand what I mean. Which application do not have top menu? Does Caja (default MATE file-manager) have this menu (File, Edit, VIew, etc)? – N0rbert Apr 27 '19 at 10:36
