short cut key to bring up right click menu

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a short cut key for bringing up the right click menu to avoid using the mouse I know on windows this is Shift-F10 but this kicks off a build?

If you are on Windows, some (or perhaps most) keyboards have the menu key on the lower right. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menu_key

You can also map a keyboard shortcut of your choice in the "keymap" settings. Under "Other" you will see a "Show Context Menu" item you can map a keyboard shortcut to (search for "context menu" in the "Keymap" settings dialog to find it easier).

If your keyboard has the Windows menu key Mark mentions, you can use it on Linux, too.

You can assign whatever shortcut you like (go to Settings | Keymap, see Other
| Show Context Menu action).
