Toolbar Woops

Ron Whiteside
I unchecked view->Layout->Menu Bar. That caused me to lose acces to the
"File Edit View ..." bar. How do I get it back?

Evolution 3.28.2 (3.28.2-1.fc28)
on Fedora

via "View > Layout" in the menu bar.

That reply does not make sense.

I tried unchecking it, and I as well did not have a File, Edit, View.... So I had to hit Alt+V on my keyboard so the View menu would pop up.

Ah! I am sorry, Paul! Only now I realize that I replied to the subject
line (says "toolbar") while you replied to the body (says "menubar").
You're right about the menubar, I was thinking only about the toolbar.

Regarding the menubar, I'm also going to quote from the Evolution user
docs (which can be accessed by pressing 'F1'):
If you ever accidentially hide the menu bar, open a Terminal
application and run the command
    gsettings set org.gnome.evolution.shell menubar-visible true
to reenable it.

        Hi,
that's unnecessarily low-level, no need to open terminal when it's
enough to press the Alt key for a short time, which will show the menu
bar again. Then the menu items will have underlined letters which are
used for shortcuts, like the 'V' from the 'View' menu, to use Alt+V to
bring it up, or 'F' for 'File', thus Alt+F for it.

For example Firefox works the same.

Would adding F10 as another shortcut to open the menu help? It works
when the menu bar is shown, but not when it's hidden.
        Bye,
        Milan
