No problem..  Do this

1) In the menu designer, make a menu called mnuRC
2) Make it's visible property = false
3) Add the subitems you'd like below it
4) add this code to the mousedown event
 
Private Sub Form_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
  if button and vbrightbutton then
     popupmenu mnuRC
End Sub

If you want any of the subitems to be bold just do like this:
PopupMenu mnuRC, , , , mnuRCSub

mnuRCSub is the subitem that should be bold.
