The Google Chrome Page and Tools menus have no visible mnemonic that indicates how to drop them down with the keyboard. Is there a way?

adding "windows" tag as I'm not sure how much of this applies to Linux and Mac –  Jeff Atwood Jan 25 '10 at 20:41
    
Removed »windows« tag again as it works on Linux too, at least. –  Joey Jan 25 '10 at 22:39

to navigate all the Google Chrome menus, per

Shift+Alt+T: Set keyboard focus on the Google Chrome toolbar. Use your right and left arrow keys to navigate to different buttons on the toolbar.

True, but that's like me asking out to drop down the Tools menu in Explorer and answering "F10". It's taking the long way. –  Kevin Dente Jan 25 '10 at 20:47
    
Additional tip for this: if you press the down arrow to expand either of the drop down menus, hit ESC to be back at the parent level where you can then continue using left and arrow keys. –  Nick Josevski Jan 25 '10 at 22:10

Doesn't work on Mac.

Tried Cmd E/F, Alt E/F, and Ctrl E/F

None do anything. Then again, Mac Chrome currently doesn't even have a damn bookmark manager.
