Keyboard Shortcut for Contextual Menus in Sequoia

Nathan Manceaux-Panot:

Haven’t seen this mentioned yet: in macOS Sequoia, you can open a context menu by pressing ⌃⏎, for the current selection. Very nice—Windows has had this for ages!

The shortcut is Control-Return. I’m looking forward to this, since I’ve often made the selection using the keyboard and don’t want my fingers to leave it. With BBEdit, LaunchBar, and some other apps, I can already access menu commands from the keyboard, but this will hopefully work everywhere.


Update (2024-07-03): Ken Case:

Wait, when did the Apple Style Guide change the terminology for “contextual menus” to “shortcut menus”?
