Isn't the menu key the alt key? That is what
I always understood it to mean.

Thanks Jean. Now that you've described it that's what I've more
commonly heard referred to as "the menu key" for the very reason that it's
used very frequently to cause context menus to appear.
This key seems to be becoming more variable as far as precisely where it's
placed and whether a keyboard has one, particularly on laptops. My
relatively new HP laptop doesn't have one at all. My partner's slightly
older Toshiba laptop has it located between ALT and CTRL on the right side of
the spacebar while the Windows key is in that position on the left on both our
laptops. I'll have to look at my old Win7 laptop upstairs to see if it
had a menu/applications key on it.
