What is menu bar? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Personal computing glossary:

The menu bar is the part of a browser or application window, typically at the top left side, that houses drop-down menus that allow the user to interact with the content or application in various ways.  

In Microsoft Word, for example, the "File" menu, for example, provides options to open a file, create a new one, and save or print -- among others. The "Edit" menu allows the user to perform such functions as copying and pasting, finding and replacing text.
