You asked me where I've seen it _under File_.
I replied that I don't know whether I've seen
that anywhere.  I certainly don't remember
where I might have seen that.  Is it important?

Now you're apparently asking whether I've ever
seen `Go To' _at all_, or rather whether I've
seen it in MS Word.  I don't remember whether
I've seen it in MS Word either.

I happen to have Word open now, and I don't
_notice_ it anywhere.  But then again, I don't
see any menus.  What looks like menu-bar labels
(`View' etc.) just seem to change the band of
icons and panels underneath that bar; they don't
seem to show menus.

(I use MS Word only to read things others have
written, and I do that as seldom as possible.)

At any rate, if your point (for some reason)
is to say that MS Word has `Edit > Go To',
then fine.  QED.  We have a winner!

Agreed.  Other stuff there, such as the window &
frame stuff, could be moved to a `View' or other
menu.  I prefer that _none_ of the menus -
including `Edit' and `File', be a catch-all bin.

There's still room for improvement.
