    Because windows allow software developers so much flexibility in application design, developers have the flexibility to determine how they allow users to customize their applications. There are three main strategies developers use to allow users to navigate their application and customize application-specific settings:

    1. The Ribbon/Control Menu: Located at the top of the screen with various settings organized into groups.
    2. The settings “gear” clipboard_e4fcbbc7dc163384b11a447edea76803b.png icon in the active window. Which brings you to the settings menu.
    3. The “more settings” dots clipboard_e0ebc8ded820c967ff690358a82619456.png will display more settings related to the application.
