13.1 Menus

Many MPLAB® X IDE functions are accessible as menu items through the menu bar located across the top of the desktop. Menu items followed by ellipses (...) will open a dialog. For more on dialogs, see 14 MPLAB X IDE Windows and Dialogs.

Shortcut keys for menu items are listed next to the menu item.

Example: The shortcut keys for New File are Control-N (CTRL + N). More shortcut key information is available from Help > Keyboard Shortcuts Card.

Menu items may be grayed out for various reasons. See 13.4 Grayed Out or Missing Items and Buttons.

Additional context menus are available by right clicking in a window. For more on these menus, see 14.24 Projects Window.
