Quickly mark all emails within email distribution group folder as read

What are the steps to mark all unread emails within an Outlook 2016 distribution group folder as read?

When I right click on the folder the only options I have are Open in New Window and Add to Favorites (see the screenshot). There isn't an option to mark all emails as read (which is an option when right-clicking on most other email folders such as the Inbox).

Are there any shortcut keys that will do this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Note quite as easy, but I guess a fall back would be to click on one email in the folder, then CTRL-A to select all, then right click and see if you can mark as read.
