Product:macOS + SDK Product Version:macOS 10.14.5
Classification:UI/Usability Reproducible:Always

According to the Human Interface Guidelines, the "Enter Full Screen" menu item should be in the "View" menu, not in the "Window menu: https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/macos/menus/menu-bar-menus/#view-menu

Built-on system apps like "ColorSync Utility.app" and "System Information.app" does not follow this. They have no "View" menu, so instead the "Enter Full Screen" menu item is placed in the "Window" menu. If this is actually allowed, it should be clarified in the Human Interface Guidelines.

Steps to Reproduce:

Open the System Information app and click the "Window" menu.

Expected Results:

I expected the "Enter Full Screen" menu item to not be there.

Actual Results:

It's there.


macOS 10.14.5
