Full featured top menu for Windows 10
Get rid of the hamburger menu, and give windows users a full on top menu like in Photoshop or Illustrator. Hiding options behind an icon is a major pain. As a user of both Mac and Windows, I'd love for the program to be the same across both operating systems.
Thanks for requesting a full-featured menu on windows. We’ve internally started work on this feature and would love to hear and engage with you on this change. Please reply to me on hnarayan(at)adobe(dot)com if you like to participate.
It still is not there. There is no edit, in Win 10 as of 1/12/21.
This program is meant to increase user experience... so please add the menu bar back... I am learning xd from tutorials, and I am completely stuck due to this change;/

2 years to simply put on a lazy menu. C'mon guys, you can do better.
I need that feature in your XD so as to make my work more efficient. Please, add the top menu bar for Windows users.
If users on Windows are paying for the same license, why are we limited with less than half of the options that are found on Apple?

I can understand the design decision to make the whole UI leaner and stick to UWP standards - however as a power user working on a large screen with mouse and keyboard - we NEED the menu to be efficient! The UWP design is nice to use for touch enabled interfaces, but both need to be accessible (as you have done in your other apps).
Seriously so annoyed that there isn't a menu bar on XD for Windows. This makes for a horrible User Experience, for a program meant for making UX design. Hello!!! Fix this please!!!! Like yesterday!
Where's the "Undo" feature??? I only know the shortcut because I've seen and used it in Illustrator. The Hamburger doesn't even have an Undo option or a Preference setting! Trying to hard to be "cute" is quite frustrating.
hamburger menu is not userfriendly give windows users a full on top menu like in Photoshop or Illustrator.
I'm glad this is being implemented. For future reference, if you have such a massive disparity between OS versions, it'd be good to have separate tutorials/guides on how to navigate features. I shouldn't have had to perform a 15-minute Google search to figure out why my application didn't match the one in the starter tutorial.
Thank you! For bringing the full-featured Top Menu Bar in the Windows version of XD!

Why are you making it more difficult for Windows users? Is our money different from what the apple users are paying you?
Seriously, what a pain. I'm trying to learn XD here and already I'm stumped coz I could not find a tapbar menu, or the EDIT button.
Can you UX/UI that first before selling it to UX/UI peeps? Thanks.
It would be very useful to have the top menu with options; File-Edit-Object etc ... also for windows users like on MAC. Windows users are not Series B users. There are too many shortcomings and differences on XD between Windows and MAC
That's awesome news!! Will be glad to finally have the full menu bar in Windows version of XD!

Windows Edition of Adobe XD:
There is no toolbar. There is no edit or object menu to use.
kindly make it user friendly just like other application of adobe like PS ,AI
Really, no menu bar is better UX in Windows?
Paradoxically the tool to design UX have the worst UX.
Please give us nav menú!!.
Not having any top navigation makes no sense. If this is a new Windows standard I've not seen this craziness anywhere else. Why not only make the burger appear if the users desktop width is less than 1024px (as good responsive websites do). There is so much wasted empty space in the UI on a 4K screen.
I ended up reverting to the far better Mac version.
I read your "feature declined" post below and this is terrible. I cannot find the File, Edit, View... options with their lists of features! PLEASE put the menu bar back.
