I know how to simulate a right click by pressing shift-F10 on the keyboard. My question is: is there a way to simulate a shift-rightclick (which sometimes provides slightly different results)?
Thanks for your help.

You may be able to use Shift-Menu Key. The menu key, on keyboards that support it, typically has a sqaure with some lines on it (to appear like a context menu). Your keyboard may even have an arrow on the key representing the cursor.

On the keyboards I've had, the menu key was located near the right Alt key. On my laptop, it is located at the top of the keyboard, next to the Home, PageUp, etc. keys.
