Invoking a context menu

Context menus are invoked on entities by selecting one or more entities, holding down the Control key, and clicking the mouse button (single button mouse). Users with three-button or scroll-wheel mice can select one or more entities and click the right mouse button to invoke a context menu. This operation is referred to as a context-click.

Context menus are invoked on user interface components, such as a dialog box, by clicking the right mouse button while the cursor is on the component (three button mouse) or holding down the Control key and clicking the mouse button (single button mouse).
