I’m not sure what the problem is that is being described,
but this is evidently a change where what used to work in
Edge no longer does.
In Chrome, just pressing alt doesn’t open the menu. If
you hold alt and type f, the menu opens. But I don’t think
this is the problem being discussed, though I’m not sure
what is being described that used to work.
Alt key alone doesn't work in a lot of modern probgrammes
including, I think, chrome...modern programmes do not really
have a "menu bar" as such so the alt key by itself does
nothing, rather than take you there as it does in old
windows programmes that have the traditional bar at the top
of the window.

Have you tried, for instance, Alt+plus a letter? The same
thing happens with me in latest Edge, where the alt key
alone doesn’t work. Hope this helps some.

bar and then activate the buttons with space bar. Oddly
enough, when I highlight these buttons, I hear NVDA say:
'settings and more alt + S' and home alt + h.'
