I think I used the wrong terminology when I said the menu bar of the  
Application Browser.  What I meant was the window bar (?), the area at  
the top of the window that has the window title and the close,  
minimise and maximise buttons (I didn't click on any of those, just in  
a blank area of the window bar.)
