In the DigiTerra Explorer workspace, the menu bar is a horizontal "bar" anchored to the top of the screen in the Desktop version and it is anchored to the bottom of the screen in the Mobile version. On the left side, it contains the Windows® application menus (e.g. File, Edit, View...). On the right hand side in the Mobile version it contains the Keyboard button. The toolbar is a horizontal "bar" anchored to the top of the screen under the menu bar, available only in the Desktop version.

You can easily check which tools / commands are accessible in which edition by opening the About panel > Evaluation > select an edition / extension then tap/click on the EVALUATE button.

A - Menu bar with six (6) application menus. File, Edit, View, Query, GNSS, Tools. The Help menu can be found in the File menu as a sub-menu, above the Exit button.

In this case the Tools menu is located at the bottom of the GPS menu as a sub-menu on the relevant devices.
