If you find out the beginning text of any command, like
DSP for display
WRK for work with

you can key DSP* to get a list of all the commands that start that way, but
that can be pretty long

easier to GO MAJOR or GO MAIN then explore menus from there

There are also topics that have menus

GO TAPE for all the options to do with using the tape drive.
