Working with menus

There are two kinds of Android menus: options menus and context menus.

Options menus

Options menus contain tools that apply to the activities of the current screen or application, not to any specific item on the screen. You open options menus by pressing the Menu button . Not all screens have options menus; if you press Menu on a screen that has no options menu, nothing happens.

Some screens have more options menu items than can fit in the main menu; you touch More to open a menu of additional items.

Options menus contain items that apply to the current screen or to the application as a whole.

Context menus

Context menus contain tools that apply to a specific item on the screen. You open a context menu by touching & holding an item on the screen. Not all items have context menus. If you touch & hold an item that has no context menu, nothing happens. You can also open a context menu for an item by selecting it with the Trackball and then pressing the Trackball.
