Sometimes you click on a menu item and it opens a sub menu (submenu,
sub-menu) that the user may select from. I tend to use Microsoft as my
guideline for writing these types of terms, but haven't been able to
track this one down.<<
My Visual Basic reference calls them submenus.
(Visual Basic, BTW, is Microsoft's own product and is used to develop
Windows applications. However, my reference (which is a classroom
reference, not a store-bought book) was not written by Microsoft. So
consider this a disclaimer. 8-)
