Kebab Menu Icon

The kebab menu, also known as the three dots menu, and the three vertical dots menu, is an icon used to open a menu with additional options. The icon is often located at the top-right or top-left of the screen or window. The picture shows an example of the kebab menu icon in Google Chrome.


The kebab menu is three vertical dots and should not be confused with the meatballs menu, which is three horizontal dots.
