Or insert just Item["Evaluate &Notebook", "EvaluateNotebook"], between two of the items under Menu["E&valuation" in MenuSetup.tr. That will put Evaluate Notebook roughly where you would find it in 5.2, and it will still keep Help as the right-most, hence easy-to-find, entry along the menu bar. Incidentally, I tried editing MenuSetup.tr directly in Mathematica, but that caused an error (even after I first deleted the internal cache information that I saw at the bottom of the file). I wonder if this was caused by spurious characters when I copied directly from David Bailey's e-mail message into the MenuSetup.tr window in Mathematica.
