In Visual Studio, we use the menu to access tools and options frequently. We can easily customize this menu bar, which means we can change the menu options order, and we can add and remove the items from the menu bar based on our preferences.
To customize the menu bar, open Microsoft Visual Studio 2022 => Tools => select Customize. It opens Customize window. Select Commands as shown below.
Select the Menu bar check box. Here we can change the menu items order, add a new item to the menu bar, and even add/delete item any of the menu items.
To change the menu items order, select the menu item and choose the Move Up or Move Down button. As shown below, we moved the Edit menu before the File menu by selecting Move Down for the File item.
To add a new item to the menu bar from existing available items, click on Add Command. It opens Add Command window as below.
Here I am selecting Build/Batch Build and clicking on Ok. It appears in our menu bar as below.
If you want to delete the menu item, select the menu item and click the Delete button.
We can even add our own menu item by selecting the “Add New Menu” button.
To add a new item to any of the sub-menu, select that particular menu item from the Menu bar and click on Add Command. Here, we are adding a new item “For Project” to the File menu.
Now, the “For Project” option is available under the File menu. In the same way, we can delete items from the sub-menu by selecting the item and the Delete button.
