s/GNUS/Gnus/, see (info "(gnus)History").

Huh?  Changes menus, tool bars, ... only happens in Gnus buffers
unless there is some bug.

I guess that is what many Gnus users do, because some Gnus operations
(network, scoring, ...)  might take quite some time.

Configuration examples on the net often tend to be outdated.  Don't
use them unless you know what they are doing by reading the *current*
Gnus documentation, i.e. use `<f1> v', `<f1> f', and consult the
manual (info "(gnus)Top").

Bye, Reiner.
