I use Mathematica on the Mac OS, and am a novice at the Windows OS. On my Mac, I can open Mathematica, then click on the "Mathematica" menu, then click on "Preferences..." to get to the preferences menu. On the Windows version (on AWS), there is no "Mathematica" menu. It looks like: windows menu on AWS

So how does one access the preferences menu from here?

    $\begingroup$ There is a company, Nimbus Services, who can put your copy of Mathematica on AWS. $\endgroup$ Sep 13, 2018 at 15:22

You can open "Preferences" dialog programmatically with:

FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["PreferencesDialog"]]
