What is the keyboard shortcut or accelerator keys for opening gedit's primary menu (the menu that appears when the three-line button at the top left)?

In older versions of the program, the key accelerators Alt+F, Alt+E, and Alt+T could open the File, Edit, and Tools menus, respectively.

https://help.gnome.org/users/gedit/stable/gedit-shortcut-keys.html.en doesn't seem to list a way to achive this.


The Shortcuts list does include it, but in an obscure way:

Open the file menu F10

  • Thanks! I can't believe they removed the typical key accelerators. The F10 is so far away from reach that you might as well reach the hamburger menu faster with a malfunctioning mouse cursor. – BringBackCommodore64 Mar 12 '18 at 16:42
