Enterprise PDM Menu Bar

The Enterprise PDM menu bar contains navigation buttons and menus of commands that can be performed for the selected file or folder.

While the menu bar is displayed for all File Explorer views, the options on the menus are determined by:

  • Your user permissions
  • Whether you have selected a file or a folder
  • The Enterprise PDM view (File, BOM, or Search) that is active
  • Whether you or your administrator have customized menus by editing your user settings in the Enterprise PDM Administration tool.
