Hi,
I've looked on the net for the answer to this but can't find it.
Does anyone know if there is a keyboard shortcut for the "right-click" mouse menu?
Ideally I want to use it in MS word for the MAC.
Many thanks if you can help.
Alex.

Its the Control (ctrl) key

Unless another modifier key has been set in the Keyboard preference pane

I think Louishen means Ctrl-L,click, which works in Finder and in many apps, like this page of M-F in a browser. I've just tried Ctrl-click in MSWord, and sure 'nuff, both R-click and Ctrl-L,click present a small menu (as per att).

Hmmm, thanks for the reply but that doesn't really solve my problem. I wanted to not touch the mousepad and get to the right-click menu, like I used to do in windows (where there was a right-click button on the keyboard. this helps when in Word to correct spelling easily without having to transfer your hand to the mouse.
well, it looks like no-one has a solution....
thanks for the efforts!!
