Wording one: 'The File menu is used to [etc]'.
Wording two: 'Menu File is used to [etc]'.
While Wording one seems 'canonical', is Wording two, without the article, acceptable?

Menu File is used to [etc].
seems awkward. We should add a definite article before Menu:
The menu File is used to [etc].
but then still the reader might perceive it to mean "the file for working with menus", so it would be better to bracket the word File with quotation marks, or add the word named:
The menu 'File' is used to [etc].
The menu named File is used to [etc].
yet still the File menu would look better, in my opinion.
