Menus and Toolbars
CLion menus and toolbars contain commands that affect the entire project or large sections of the project. To apply a command to the current context, use context-sensitive pop-up menus. Most of the commands has an associated keyboard shortcut to enable quicker access to it.
Use menu items with a checkbox in the View | Toolbar.menu to show or hide the main elements of the CLion window. For example, if you want to show the main toolbar, select
