I have just updated to Windows 10. Everything appears to be fine with CorelDraw except that the menu bar (File/Edit/View etc) has disappeared.
Everything is still there, but the text is the same colour as the background, so it only appears when the cursor is over it and it gets a blue background for the item.
This makes using the program very awkward.
Can anything be done?
One thing you can do to make it easier to see menu's is to Right click Menu and the select "Customize" .. then select "Menu Bar" ..Then select "Caption to Right of Image" This way a image is show where the invisible menu's are and shows menu words when you move mouse over.
Here is how it will look, showing Corel Photo-PAINT X5 but is same for Corel Draw X5
Funny thing in CorelDRAW X3 menu's show fine in windows 10.
I am not sure how Windows 10 handles the various display options. That said, you may want to research Display Properties in Windows 10. If you do find such an option, look for the Appearance tab and then Advanced. In drop down look for Menu and set the color to a contrasting color. The menu bar appearance features , as far as I know have always been system wide in all window OS.

I just re-read the original issue and realise I had misread it the first time. Maybe you can try changing themes in Windows 10 which is done as follows:
Unlike older versions of Windows - in Windows 10 Themes update instantaneously without a delay and the screen going dark. Try different Themes and see if one works for you. I am using a Windows Default theme which gives a blue task bar.

A quick work-around for me was to run photo-paint X4 in compatibility mode for WinXP SP3. I haven't tested it fully, but at least it produced old style menus that could be read. Win7 and WinV compatibility modes didn't work either. Good luck.,

The best solution for this is to create a new Command bar!
Follow these steps
1. Open a Blank File
2. Go to Tools>Customization
Then find Command Bars (it should be on under Customization)
3. Create a New Command Bar by Clicking New..name it anything
This bar will appear on your CD window
4. Go to Commands (Below Customization)
5. Look for File and drag it into the new command bar..do the same for Edit and so on...(works for all except Bitmaps)
6. Drag this new Command bar to where Menu bar was disable menu bar visibility...
7. Save workspace for future use..
This is not a permanent fix...but works...
Attached is a pic of my new menu bar...
hope this works for you...
