A closer look at Application Menus

In this lesson for macOS Mojave on the Mac, I look at Application Menus. Application menus not only tell you which app you are currently in but they also give you access to specific features for the active app.

Seeing which App is the active App
If you ever want to see which is the active app, the app that is frontmost, just look at the left side of the Menu Bar. The application name will show you which app is front most. Also, you will see menu items specific to that app.

Accessing App Specific Menu
Just go to the right of the Application name to see specific menus for that app. A few of these menus are consistent across multiple apps, including File and Edit, but under each menu name, they will have specific features for the app.
