Figure 1 Example of our services menu button

A menu button is a user interface component that is typically indicated using an icon or text that opens a menu when activated or clicked. It generally displays a list of options or actions that a user can choose from.

The menu button is often located at the top left or top right corner header section of a website or application. It is commonly used in mobile applications and websites to provide quick access to navigation menus or settings. It CAN also be defined within the main content area or the footer region. For example, language selection menu CAN be found in the footer section of the page as well.

The menu button helps users quickly navigate through different areas of the application or website.
