When I right click on an icon in the Dock, I get a menu as usual (New Window, Options, Quit, etc.). When I right click an an icon in the Dock in Mission Control nothing happens.

How can I enable the right-click menu for Dock app icons while in Mission control?

Clicking and holding on the dock icon will open the context menu, though it will also dismiss Mission Control at the same time (but that still saves you the step of having to dismiss Mission Control yourself first).

It seems that you cannot right click a Dock icon while in Mission Control.

Perhaps there is a hack/interface app or some sort? – MarkovCh1 Oct 22 '12 at 19:53
