Lesson 3. Using Menus > Using Shortcut Menus

Using Shortcut Menus

Windows supplies a variety of shortcut, or quick, menus that contain common commands you often use. You can display a shortcut menu by right-clicking an object such as the desktop, a window, a folder or file, and so on. The commands that a shortcut menu displays depend on the item and its location. These menus are also often referred to as pop-up menus.

To display and use a shortcut menu, point the mouse at the object you want to explore, cut, open, or otherwise manipulate, and right-click the mouse. The shortcut menu appears; move the mouse to the command and click again. Cancel a shortcut menu by clicking the mouse anywhere besides on the menu.
