Users of Windows applications have grown to expect right-click menus in applications.  But for some unexplained reason, Microsoft disabled the built-in shortcut menus in run-time applications. This has resulted in many Access developers avoiding the use of these menus and subsequently decreasing the functionality of their applications.  However, I’ve found that despite Microsoft’s unexplained decision, it is actually quite easy to overcome this situation and implement these menus in your applications.

In a recent article I explain how to add and use these shortcut menus in your applications, but the critical element is creating these menus.  The Access Shortcut Tool provides a quick and easy user interface for copying built-in menus or creating your own.
