   Current normal Windows behaviour (>=W2K, maybe earlier with recent

standard controls, such as edit and richedit, but this is the behaviour you

commands is great for imrpving the speed for knowledgeable users, the
concept that right-click should always show a context menu aids
discoverability by beginners and people transferring from other
