The View option provides functions related to the display of the model, such as which panels to show, Zoom, etc.
The Tools option provides functions for debugging models and customizing FreeCAD's behaviour.
The Macro option provides functions related to the recording and execution of groups of FreeCAD commands.
The Workbench option provides functions related to the workbench in use. It contains functions specific to the current workbench.
The Measure option provides functions related to the Delta and/or 3D distances. This menu appears only in the Part Workbench.
The Windows option allows for switching between and arranging open FreeCAD windows.
The Help option provides access to the FreeCAD help system and provides information about your FreeCAD installation.
