The Admin Screen provides access to the control features of your WordPress installation. Each Admin Screen is presented in sections; the toolbar (and header), the main navigation, the work area, and the footer.

At the bottom of that section is a “Collapse menu” button which shrinks the menu into a set of icons, or to expands to list them by major function. Within each major function, like Posts, the sub-menu expands when hovered over, and expands fully if an item is clicked.
