The WLM Team decided that the familiar Menu Bar was just wasted real estate,
so they decided to hide it, by default. Many WLM users still haven't found
out how to show it, and we get questions about it every day.
To show the Menu Bar temporarily, just press <Alt>. To toggle it on
semi-permanently, use <Alt>=M, M.
This is the Menu Bar (with File, Edit, View, etc.), which is not the same as
the customizable Toolbar. I don't recall the default buttons on the Toolbar
because I changed them long ago; mine currently starts with New, Reply
group, Forward, Print...
