How to customize the menus in JDownloader
Posted by Jay Downloader, Last modified by Jiaz on 28 April 2017 11:48 AM

Most menus and toolbars in JDownloader can be fully customized. This means that you decide which menu entries shall be available, and how they work. 

Customizing a menu  is pretty simple. You just have to open the Menu Manager. All Menu Managers can be accessed via settings -> user interface -> Menus and Toolbars.

In the Menu Manager, there are usually many options for each menu entry. You can add additional buttons, rename existing ones, create submenus, change icons, hide/show icons and much more.

 

There is an own Menu Manager for every major menu or button bar in JDownloader

1. Right Click Menu (Context Menu) in die Download table 

You can open this Menu Manager from the settings menu, or by clicking the last entry in the context menu itself.

2. Right Click Menu (Context Menu) in die Linkgrabber table

You can open this Menu Manager from the settings menu, or by clicking the last entry in the context menu itself.

3. The Main Toolbar

You can open this Menu Manager from the settings menu, or by clicking (right mouse) in the empty space right beside the buttons. 

4. The Main Menu

You can open this Menu Manager from the settings menu, or by clicking (right mouse) in the empty space right beside the menu entries. (Screenshot below: 1)

For MAC users, the main menu looks a bit different, because JDownloader uses the native MAC menu. Anyway, the menu manager works fine.

5. The Tray Menu

You can open this Menu Manager from the settings menu, or by clicking the tray menu entry.

6. Bottom Panel in the Download Tab

You can open this Menu Manager from the settings menu, or by clicking the tiny settings button on the right.

7. Bottom Panel in the Linkgrabber Tab

You can open this Menu Manager from the settings menu, or by clicking the tiny settings button on the right.
