Another Handy Shortcut Combination (Shift + F10)

I might be a little late on this one, but I just learned a new shortcut that will definitely save me time when I am working in my VM on my mac. I love to use the keyboard. And when I use my natural keyboard it is fairly easy to access context menus (right click) by using the context menu key on the keyboard. My MacBook does not have such a key. This meant that up until yesterday (when I learned the shortcut) I had to have a mouse plugged in any time I wanted to access the context menu.

Shift-F10 is actually a keyboard shortcut that accomplishes the exact same thing as the context menu key / right click.

Thanks to Jay Smith for pointing this out for me.

    You can also right click by using the trackpad while pressing the apple key (or was it ctl?, I don’t really remember)

    I think the point was to avoid mouse/trackpad and keep your hands on the keyboard. I’ll admit, I think I almost never used that key.

    Have you tried tapping trackpad with two fingers?
