By default on a PeopleTools 8.5x demo environment, the new Menu pagelet will be used (and not Menu Classic). However, if you are upgrading your application, you may find the settings aren't what you expect. For example, instead of seeing the new menu, user's may see the older menu which has the title Menu - Classic as shown:

select * from PSPRUHTABPGLT where PORTAL_OBJNAME_PGT = 'PT_84X_MENU';
If you want to script a fix for this, the value of the
PORTAL_OBJNAME_PGT field should be changed from
MENU to use the new PeopleTools 8.5x menu.
