Pull-down Menus

Developed from xerox research (like just about everything else we take for granted in desktop publishing) these are a method of providing user control over software without cluttering up the screen with text. Using the mouse or cursor keys the user points to the main heading of the menu he or she wants and the menu pulls (windows) or drops (gem) from the heading. When the required function has been selected the menu rolls back up into the menu bar leaving the screen clear.
