The Context (Right-Click) Menus in Detail

Contextual menus will appear when right clicking various elements of the user interface. The options will be different based on the type of UI element being clicked.

Mac users with a single-button mouse can "right click" by holding Ctrl when clicking. Some users may need to enable this feature in System Settings.

The headings on this page are organized first by the section of the UI, followed by the UI element that is being right-clicked.
