Task 9: Using Menus



In the window or program, click the menu name (in this case, the menu name is View).


Click the command you want.


Although you can perform many tasks by clicking the mouse on different onscreen objects, you must choose commands to perform the majority of Windows tasks. Commands are organized in menus. Most windows contain menu bars that list the available menus; each menu then contains a group of related commands.


See an Arrow or Ellipsis?

Selecting a command that is followed by an arrow will display a submenu (a menu within a menu). Select the command you want from the submenu by clicking it. Clicking a command that is followed by an ellipsis will display a dialog box.


Close a Menu

To close a menu without making a selection, you can press the Esc key on your keyboard or click outside the menu.
