Working with Menus

You are probably already familiar with menus. To open a menu, click its name on the menu bar, and then click the command you want to issue.

However, in Office 2000 programs like PowerPoint, the menus have a special feature. When you open a menu, the entire menu does not display right away; only a select list of commands appears. If you pause a moment, or click the down-pointing arrow at the bottom of the menu, the entire menu unfurls, showing the remaining commands. This is called an adaptive menu because it adapts to the way you use the program. For example, in Figure 3.1, the menu on the left is the one that opens initially, and the one on the right is the full version that opens a few seconds later.
