Would also be little effort I guess, in case the menu is not set to be
permanently on. But what if the user accidentally starts your app and
don't know how to exit it, and also only can communicate with the mouse
to the computer? I won't be responsible for losing life-savind data.

The menubar is a also window, when set switchable, so this is no difference.

The only change would be to let a window override the menubar wich is already possible with


but it will reappear after some time.

As long as he knows how to use the keyboard.
