Chapter 1. Getting Started with Office > Choosing Menu and Dialog Box Options

Choosing Menu and Dialog Box Options

A menu is a list of related commands or options, located at the top of the window. For example, the Edit menu contains commands for editing a document, such as Delete and Cut. You can right-click a word or object to open a shortcut menu, which contains menu commands related to the specific item. Clicking a menu command followed by an ellipsis (...) opens a dialog box (a specialized window), where you choose various options and provide information for completing the command. As you switch between programs, you'll find that all Office menus and dialog boxes look similar and work in the same way.

Choose Menu Commands

Click a menu name on the menu bar, or right-click an object (such as a toolbar, spreadsheet cell, picture, or selected text).

If necessary, click the expand arrow to expand the menu and display more commands.

Click a menu command you want, or point to the arrow to the right of the menu command to display a submenu of related commands, and then click the command you want.
