The Menu Bar contains a set of the most frequently used tool buttons from the Standard toolbar, the SolidWorks menus, the SolidWorks Search, and a flyout menu of Help options.

Feature Description
Frequently used tool buttons

By clicking the down arrow next to a tool button, you can expand it to display a flyout menu with additional functions. This lets you access most of File menu commands from the toolbar. For example, the Save flyout menu includes Save, Save As, and Save All.

You can customize this toolbar in the same way that you customize other toolbars.

SolidWorks menus

The menus are visible when you move the mouse over or click the SolidWorks logo. You can pin the menus to keep them visible at all times. The toolbar moves to the right when the menus are pinned.
