Glossary » dropdown menu

dropdown menu

in a menubar, an item you can click that brings down a list of options to choose, typically used to perform commands or set options.

Not always used to refer to items in a menubar, a menu can also appear on other parts of a screen, such as in a toolbar or dialog box, in which case it is sometimes called a popup menu. Pulldown menus are similar, except that “pulldown” usually refers to needing to hold the mouse button down to keep the menu open.
