In Windows, the control box in the upper left corner of a window has a drop-down menu that appears when you click the control box. The drop-down menu contains items such as Move, Size, Minimize, and Maximize. Depending on the position of the mouse, when you hold down the mouse button, the drop-down menu either remains down or retracts to its original position.
If you simply depress the mouse button over the control box instead of clicking the control box, the resulting behavior depends on where you release the mouse button:
- If the button is released over a grayed item, the menu remains dropped to indicate that the selection is not currently active.
- If the button is released outside of the menu or control box, the menu is dismissed and no action is taken
- If the button is released over an enabled menu item, then the menu is dismissed and the appropriate action is invoked.
