Red face Linpus Menu opener

I just bought an Acer aspire one with linpus installed. After searching youtube for a video with instructions on how to enable compiz , I saw the user opening a menu list and getting to some settings. I tried to open it and find the opening key or combiation but I failed. Can someone help me? It is useless id I cant access the actual settings and not the newbie settings, Thanks.

Here are instructions on how to reveal/enable the hidden menu.

Click My Documents under the Files Tab. Select File--> Terminal. A terminal window appears.

Enter xfce-setting-show in the terminal command line to access the Xfce Settings Manager.

Select the Desktop icon in the Xfce Settings Manager--> Click the Behavior tab--> Toggle Show desktop menu on right click so the box is checked.

Return to the desktop by closing all open windows.

Right click somewhere on the desktop to confirm that the desktop menu is enabled.
