It is pretty easy to get around the menu options in Windows just with your keyboard alone. For example, hold onto Alt+F and you've opened the File menu for that program.

Does OSX have an equivalent way of keyboard-navigating the menus? Thanks in advance.

OSX 10.63

His question was fairly clear, he wants to navigate through the menus with his kb, not memorize a list of key combos.

Look at the keyboard section of System Preferences. You can change the key combo to whatever you want.

I read the question, understood the question, and know the answer.

But considering how snarky you were to a long-standing member who was trying to help, I choose to keep that answer to myself.

... and that very command to change focus is in the link I posted. I'm not going to spoon-feed someone who is too lazy to read or has a snotty attitude toward those who try to help.
From Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts, as posted earlier:
Control-F1 Toggle full keyboard access on or off
Control-F2 Move focus to the menu bar
