Chapter 5. Application Basics > Standard Application Menus

Standard Application Menus

Apple's Human Interface Guidelines provide basic recommendations to software developers to ensure a certain amount of consistency from one application to another. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the standard menus that appear in most applications: the application menu, File, Edit, Window, and Help.
