Excel has two top-level menu bars, and which menu bar is displayed depends on what has focus in Excel. The worksheet menu bar (Figure 19-1) is displayed when Excel first starts up, when a worksheet has focus, and when all workbooks are closed.

The chart menu bar (Figure 19-2) appears when a chart sheet or an embedded chart object has focus.

There are also context menus for just about every item in the Excel interface. Context menus pop up when you right-click an item in Excel. For example, Figure 19-3 shows the context menu displayed when you right-click a range of cells.
Context menus are also sometimes called shortcut menus.

You can change any of these types of menus to:
Add or delete existing commands
Create new items that run code
Build custom menus of items with multiple levels
The following sections detail how to create and modify each of these types of menus.
