Chapter 5. Menus& Shortcuts > Contextual Menus

Contextual Menus

The Finder has contextual menus: hold down the Control key (not the Command/Apple key), click anywhere, and a menu pops up. These are called “contextual” menus because the context of the menu varies depending on what you click upon: an application icon, a folder icon, a document icon, a disk icon, a blank spot inside a window, a blank spot on the Desktop, etc. What you see in these menus might also change as time goes by and more features are added.

Practice:

Hold down the Control key and click on a folder, a blank spot in a window, a disk icon, a document, or an application.

To put away a contextual menu, just click anywhere outside the menu.
