Exactly. I went to the Emacs manual, searched for "menu" in the table
of contents, and found the appropriate section within 30 seconds. The
second paragraph explained the function of the F10 key.

One good feature of the Emacs manual is that the table of contents is
so comprehensive. By reading it you can quickly gain an understanding
of what features are available and which sections of the manual are of
interest.

I would suggest that new users should read the Emacs tutorial and
browse the table of contents of the Emacs manual, reading whichever
sections they consider most relevant to them.
