|Standard application menu items that show or hide applications.|
|Quit SiteSucker||Terminates the SiteSucker application.|
The File menu allows you to create, open, close, and save SiteSucker documents, open the destination folder, and perform other file-related tasks. This menu provides the following menu items:

The Edit menu provides standard and custom editing commands. It has the following menu items:
|Standard edit menu items.|
|Reset Status||Resets the status indicators in the frontmost SiteSucker window.|
|Add to Queue||Adds the address shown in the URL text field to the SiteSucker queue without actually beginning a download. This allows you to create and save a document that includes sites in the queue.|
The View menu lets you display the SiteSucker queue, customize the toolbar, and navigate the Settings dialog. It provides the following menu items:
|Shows or hides the drawer containing the contents of the SiteSucker queue.|

The Control menu allows you to control the download. It provides the following menu items:

|Next||Stops the current download and begins downloading the next address in the queue.|
|Pauses the download. Select this menu item again to resume downloading.|
|Stop||Stops the download and clears the queue.|
|Stop Analysis||Discontinues file analysis and simply downloads all remaining files. In other words, SiteSucker stops looking for new files to download. This menu item only affects the current download and does not clear the queue.|
The Settings menu lists all your saved settings files. (The Preferences window lets you save settings files.) Select a file's name in the menu to assign its settings to the active document. All settings in the menu that match the settings of the active document are shown with a check mark. The Settings menu provides the following menu items:

|Edit Settings...||Displays the Settings dialog, which lets you customize the settings of the active document.|
|Save As User Defaults||Saves the current settings of the active document as the user default settings. The user default settings are assigned to new SiteSucker documents.|
|Displays the previous or next section in the Settings dialog.|
The History menu displays the ten most recently used URLs. When you choose a URL from the menu, SiteSucker enters it into the URL text field.
You can also use the Command-Option-Arrow keys to cycle through the list of recently used URLs.
To delete all recent URLs, select Clear Menu.
The Bookmarks menu displays bookmarks read from a web browser. When you choose a bookmark from the menu, SiteSucker enters it into the URL text field.
The Preferences window lets you specify from which browser the bookmarks are read. If No Bookmarks is specified in the preferences, the Bookmarks menu is not shown.
The Downloads menu gives you easy access to your downloaded files. Whenever you start a download, the first file downloaded is added to this menu. The menu is organized by host name, and only files in the destination folder for the active document are shown.
Choose an item in the menu to open it. If you choose the Edit item, the Downloads Editor is displayed, which allows you to remove, rename, or reorder items in the menu.
