It really does not matter which program you are using on a Mac — your Menu Bar remains constant irrespective of the program being used. Yes some menus do change but some such as the Apple menu are retained all the time. To activate the Menu Bar without a mouse, you can press the Ctrl F2 key combination (or Ctrl Fn F2, if you use a smaller keyboard on a Mac laptop). Thereafter you access various menu options by typing their first couple of letters. Sometimes, this feature may suddenly stop working — you may not be able to activate the Menu Bar using the key combination Ctrl F2 (or Ctrl Fn F2).
