A description of the clicks on the iconbar icon has been added to the
4.69 manual: Manual -> Introduction -> The iconbar icon

So this would look like this?

  Menu -> Open config -> UserPrefs
                      -> Defaults
                      -> ModeLock
                      -> ModeFile -> Modes menu
                      -> ModeWhen -> Modes menu

Another idea might be to add opening of ModeFile and ModeWhen files to
the view menu: View menu -> <modename> -> Open ModeFile
                                       -> Open ModeWhen

You can try out how this would work by adding these lines to the BaseMode

  Menu     Open ModeFile
  Select   SetTmp Run("Filer_Run <StrongED$Tmp_ModePath>.ModeFile")

  Menu     Open ModeWhen
  Select   SetTmp Run("Filer_Run <StrongED$Tmp_ModePath>.ModeWhen")

This can then be used in a mode to open its ModeFile or ModeWhen.
