Chapter specification - menu system

This chapter is used in the following manuals:

This chapter is intended for the amateurs, occasional and basic operators. It shall present each and every command on the product’s menu system. This includes all normal menus – independent of their graphical presentation –, as well as secondary and shortcut menus that are provided in the user interface. For each menu command, the purpose of the function shall be provided by reusing the purpose element from the function/dialog description.

Whenever necessary, general descriptions about the menu principles, “smart buttons”, or similar features, are included at the start of the chapter. In reference manuals, insert a page reference to the function or dialog description.


Whenever a menu system is described, we must always use the rules and guidelines defined by the Microsoft Manual of Style.
