Funzionalità del menu


New Member
Hi! I am wondering whether this makes sense in English:

"Menu features are: Tools, Delete, Options, Zoom"

The problem is "feature": would that be correct in a software manual to indicate Tools, Delete, etc.? Could I alternatively use "functions"?

I've found in the dictionary that the Italian term "funzionalità" is "feature" in English computer terminology, but since the word recalls the Italian "funzione" I wonder if the term "function" is interchangeable.

    Hi betty,

    The first two attempts (menu features and menu functions) sound a little odd to me.

    I think the term is usually menu items or menu options. in this sentence that I just pulled from a web page:

    "This document gives step by step instructions for customizing the options that appear on the right-click menu for various file types."
