pull-down menu (drop-down menu) A menu that appears on a computer screen when its title, often occurring in a menu bar, is selected by means of a mouse or other pointing device or an appropriate sequence of keystrokes. One or more of the menu options may then be selected in the same way, after which the menu will normally vanish.
