    Context menu in Windows 8 customization question.


    I am missing some of (perhaps all) system tasks that used to be available in context menus of the previous Windows versions. Please see the attached image for details.
    Is there a way to make, say, "Move" easily available (so that I can, e.g., move a window from invisible part of display within a remote session)? How?
    Thanks.

    Hello Mid, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    No worries.

    When you right click on a taskbar icon in Windows 7 and Windows 8, you see the jump list now.

    To see the context menu like in XP and Vista, you would press Shift + right click instead.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
