Menus have been around in software for a long time. You click
a menu, and a list of commands appears. Click a command,
and a few things can happen. A dialog box might be displayed
offering a group of settings. A submenu might be displayed
offering additional commands. Finally, the software might take
an action, such as opening a new, blank document.
