    Are the Online Tools for Creating Drop Down Menus Free to Use?

    The online tools for creating drop down menus are free to use. Every website that I have ran across offered the generator for free. If you come across one that requires you to pay for the generator, I would recommend going with a free one. There are too many free ones to have to pay for one. Some sites say they offer free generators and when you get to looking, they ask that you download a program to create the buttons and then you only get a free trial. With the actual online generators, you don't have to purchase or download anything. You can make them right from the website and copy your code you need.
