    Question Keyboard shortcuts on right click menu's

    Is there anyway to add short cuts to the right click menu's ?

    e.g. in Saved Sessions, none of the options ... Open, Open as New, etc. have got the usual single letter accelerator
    ... I always prefer keeping my hands on the keyboard and minimise mouse work
    ... RSI is an issue

    Hi Steve,

    Accelerators are only displayed if you navigate to a command directly with the keyboard. In the Home view, if you navigate using "Alt-S" on the keyboard it will show accelerator keys. If you open a menu by right clicking on a file or by clicking "Session" on the menu, accelerator keys are not displayed.

    This matches the behavior of Windows Explorer. In Explorer if you use "Alt-F" on the keyboard it will display accelerators, but right clicking on a file does not display accelerators.

    There's a setting for this in Windows' Display properties, at least on XP (in the Effects section).

    What's missing, though, are accelerators for BC's context menu in Windows Explorer (e.g. "Select left file for compare" and "Compare to..."). Every other command has an accelerator. Plus, BC's entries are in the middle of the menu so it's a scrolling affair for every file.

    Thanks, Pete. We'll investigate this and see if we can get them in there.
