A menu that is modified automatically by usage. For example, right clicking a file name displays a menu of canned options; however, items may be added to the menu by new applications at time of installation. Proposed by Alan Freedman, author of the encyclopedia, a dynamic user menu (DUM) adjusts over time based on which items the user routinely clicks. As of 2022, there is little evidence of a DUM menu in use, but there are countless "dumb" menus in use.
