Hide or show the menu bar (classic menus) in Opera

Google Chrome introduced the "menu-less" web browser interface, which saves a bit of screen real estate by displaying the classic menus only when needed; other web browsers followed suit, starting with Apple's Safari, and then adopted in Opera and the upcoming Internet Explorer 9. While this feature is useful, especially on netbooks and other computers running with a low screen resolution, it can also be confusing for some users, and a source of frustration for users who prefer to use keyboard shortcuts instead of the mouse. In this tutorial, we will show you how to restore and show the classic menus in Opera.
