    Right-Click keystroke? (MSO 2003)

    It may be a Win(XP-Pro) issue, but I wanted to use it in Outlook, so:

    Is there a keystroke combination that simulates right-clicking on an icon?

    Regards,

    Most recent keyboards have a "context menu" key to the right of the space bar, between the Windows and Ctrl keys. It's the right hand key in the screenshot below.

    Knowledge Base searches are amazing <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> . How about Shift + F10? But wouldn't you normally have to select an item (with a mouse click) before you initiate a context menu?

    (edited to change wrong answer into correct one)

    Shift-F10 should work as well.
