Is there a thread in which they thrash out the design decision to move 
this command from the Item menu to the Windows menu? I can't fathom it. 
This seems whacko jacko! What has this command got to do with windows? 
In my mind the window is a handy sort of thing to play in. It's like a 
cup: I use a cup to hold my coffee while I drink from it but I don't 
think about the cup. I add sugar and milk to the coffee. I distribute 
them evenly by stirring them with a spoon. I drink the coffee. I ignore 
the cup.

And to make it even harder for me to understand I observe this: When no 
items are selected the Items menu is greyed out, ie, no need for it. 
When one or more items are selected the Items menu becomes active, 
drawing my attention to the menu. Doesn't that say anything? I've just 
selected a couple of items, the Items menu is now active. Why would I 
look anywhere else? I feel that I may as well look under the table and 
find the command I need there. I am very puzzled.
