Good afternoon listers; got a wireless keyboard with no context menu key that \i can find.  Is there another way to get to context menu? Thanks in advance.

Shift plus F10 or the Jaws commands to mimic the mouse buttons.

Yes,

Do a shift plus F10.

Sometimes keyboards will have a different combination to do the same thing.  One of mine used the right alt with print-screen.  Most of the time, shift-f10 will work, and that is the simplest.

Not that it hasn't already been mentioned, but SHIFT+F10 is the standard Windows 2-key combination for the context menu.  Keyboards with the menu key/applications key came along much later in the hardware evolution.

See:  

Keyboard shortcuts in Windows - Windows Help

If you happen to want to search for a specific keyboard shortcut, it's generally easier if you activate the "Show All" link near the top of the page to expose all of them at once.

With a Focus braille display, it’s dots 1-7-8 chord, j to simulate the Shift+F10.
