Selecting Menu headings with Key Command

Hi, good people,

In C7 and earlier versions, there was a way to select menu headings and other menu items with key commands. I think it was, holding down Alt while you press F selected the File Menu. Holding down Alt and pressing A selected the Audio menu, then you could press P and I to select the Pitch Shift function.

This doesn’t work in C8.5. Is there another way to do it, so I don’t have to use the mouse to select the menu item, etc.?
I’m using Windows 7 Pro.
