If you are working in a program with a long menu, what happens if menu items cover something else on screen?-
Gene, no snark intended, but you've nailed it with the phrase "cover something else on screen." That's precisely what happens, and definitely in Windows 7 and earlier. There are transparency effects that can be activated in Windows 8 and 10, but I do not think those apply to menus proper, but to window frames and other elements. Even when transparency is on, what I have been able to see in specific contexts is not clearly visible. It is intentionally fuzzy by design.
I'll have to open something in TextMaker on my other laptop since I have it set up to use the menu interface, and I believe transparency effects are on, too, to see if they are applied to the dropdown menus or not.

[Regarding the Supreme Court refusing to hear the case brought by Texas to overturn the votes certified by 4 states:] Pleased with the SCOTUS ruling, but also immediately slightly terrified of where this crazy train goes next. We should know by now there’s a bottomless supply of crazy.
