tool bar
Jump to user comments
operating system A common graphical user interface
component, consisting of a permanently visible row of button
icons which, when clicked with the mouse, cause the
program to perform some action such as printing the current
document or changing the mode of operation.
The tool bar buttons often duplicate functions accessible via
menus but are easier to use since they are permanently
visible. A typical use would be in a paint program where
the tool bar allows the users to select one of the various
painting "tools" - brush, pencil, bucket etc.
