OpenGL itself does not do such things. It doesn’t deal with GUIs and so forth, so you have to use alternate means of dealing with that.

Consider a combination of FreeGLUT and GLUI, depending on how simple your needs are.

you can use glut menus
google them they are easy to use
but if you want to change their look
youll have to do everything yourself like coding and designing
