How to center canvas in GIMP

When I create a new document in GIMP the default canvas is not centered and is aligned to top. this creates problems because if by a slight mistake I go above the canvas, the menus are clicked accidentally. This is awkward. I want to center the canvasenter image description here

I have tried in preferences but no relevant option was there.

I tried view>>Navigation, clicking one of the bottom buttons enlarges it but there is no option to center the canvas. How can I center the canvas for example in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzYdQE1Tbyw (Please ignore the contents of the video and its title. I am talking about the way canvas is displayed in his GIMP window).
