menu bar

The menu bar is a specially marked area in a graphical user interface (GUI) in which the menu names are permanently displayed.

The menu bar is usually located at the top of the screen, although the position is not fixed and the bar can also be positioned elsewhere on the screen. The menus are activated by clicking on them, and a pull-down menu appears when the menu bar is at the top of the screen.
