Menus

Most applications and folder windows have menu bars. A menu bar is a list of menus. When you click the name of a menu it drops down. This is called opening a menu or pulling down a menu. The most common menu choices include File, Edit, View, Tools, Window, and Help. In some menus, an arrowhead appears to the right of some of the listed options. This means that when you point to it, another menu will appear. Options that are followed by an ellipsis (three periods), will display a dialog box. Options with nothing after them will execute immediately.
