On a lot of Windows keyboards there's a key to the right of the spacebar that brings up the context-menu (right-click menu) in applications (I'm running Win7). I can't seem to find a way to map this function to the VM's keyboard in Parallels. Is it even possible?


For Bootcamp I'm using AutoHotkey app as a way to remap standard Windows keyboard switch combination to Command ⌘+Space.

I've just tried to remap right command key of my Apple Aluminum keyboard to become Context menu key and it works with editing AutoHotkey.aht configuration file and adding


as a key binding. You may read more on remapping with AutoHotKey here. And here is a list of key names.

Also, in Windows, Shift ⇧+F10 should act as a context menu shortcut but I can't attest since my F10 key is not working and I'm too lazy to boot into Windows again and remap it just to test it.)

    +1 for the Shift + F10. That seems to work for the most part, depending on what control has focus. Thanks. – Umar Farooq Khawaja Jan 16 '13 at 10:41
