Chapter 2. Working in Windows NT 4.0 > Understanding the Context Menu

Understanding the Context Menu

One of the most useful features of the Windows NT interface is the Context menu. Context menu is a special menu that appears when you right-click most objects in Windows NT. The real benefit of the Context menu is that it only shows choices relevant to the object you've selected. For example, when you right-click a file name in Windows NT, the Context menu displays choices such as Rename, Print, and Quick View—all appropriate actions you would take on a file. When you right-click the Recycle Bin, the Context menu displays choices such as Open, Explore, and Empty Recycle Bin—all relevant operations for the Recycle Bin (see Figure 2.37).

Figure 2.37. When you right-click most objects in Windows NT, the Context menu appears. The Context menu for a file differs from the Context menu for the Recycle Bin.
