26.14 Menu Bars

You can turn display of menu bars on or off with M-x menu-bar-mode or by customizing the variable menu-bar-mode. With no argument, this command toggles Menu Bar mode, a minor mode. With an argument, the command turns Menu Bar mode on if the argument is positive, off if the argument is not positive. You can use the X resource ‘menuBarLines’ to control the initial setting of Menu Bar mode. See section X Resources.

Expert users often turn off the menu bar, especially on text-only terminals, where this makes one additional line available for text. If the menu bar is off, you can still pop up a menu of its contents with C-Mouse-3 on a display which supports pop-up menus. See section Mouse Clicks for Menus.

See section The Menu Bar, for information on how to invoke commands with the menu bar. See section X Options and Resources, for how to customize the menu bar menus' visual appearance.
