How about "From the main menu, point to Utilities, and then click
Plug-ins."
Or for even further drill down: "From the main menu, point to Utilities
>Plug-ins, and then click Drop Cap."

Quick question about some terminology...

I'm documenting a web based app and I have put the
fairly standard phrase "From the main menu, click ..."

Now the problem is you don't click, you just mouse
over to get the sub menu items to appear...

So what should I put? "From the main menu, mouse over
..." doesn't really work to say the least and I'm
kinda stumped as to what to put...

Thoughts?
