Figure 24 shows the common menus and their usual menu items.Figure 24 Common Menus
In your application, provide a File menu and a Help menu. (You can change the title of the File menu, as discussed in Typical File Menu.) The other common menus are optional. When designing menus, include the optional common menus only if your application needs them. Similarly, within each menu, include optional items only if they fit your application's needs. Later sections of this chapter explain which menu items are required in each common menu and under which conditions they are required.
When placing common menus in a menu bar, place them in this order: File, Edit, View, Help. Place any additional menus between the Edit menu and the View menu, or between the View menu and the Help menu.
