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.
