Application menus

Application menus provide access to global, top level actions and options for your application. These include standard items for accessing documentation and information about the application.

When to use

Application menus are a standard part of GNOME 3, and every application that runs under GNOME 3 should have one.

Additional Guidance

  • Follow the standard design guidance for menus.

  • If an item from the application menu is frequently used, consider moving it to a more accessible location.
