A MENU file is a Menu Extra used by Mac operating systems starting with Mac OS X 10.1. It contains a small program, sometimes referred to as a "menulet," that allows Mac OS X / macOS users to monitor and adjust settings on their computers. Examples include AirPort, Time Machine, and network preferences. MENU files replaced .DOCK files, which had previously been used to install Dock Extras.

MENU files allow you to add Menu Extras to your Mac's menu bar. In most cases, they are installed automatically along with the corresponding program. However, you may also be able to install a Menu Extra by double-clicking a MENU file. When installed correctly, the Menu Extra will appear on the right side of your Mac's menu bar.
