A shortcut menu is a menu that appears when you right-click an object. In Microsoft Forms, the following objects have shortcut menus:

  • The Toolbox, each page in the Toolbox, and each item on a page of the Toolbox.

  • Individual controls on a form.

  • Groups of controls (groups created with the Group command).

  • Containers (such as UserForm).

  • Individual Page objects in a MultiPage.

  • Individual Tab objects in a TabStrip.

  • Multiple controls that aren't in a group.

The commands on a shortcut menu vary depending on the object you select. For example, if you select multiple controls that aren't in a group, the shortcut menu will include the Group command; the shortcut menu for the Toolbox will not.

To display the shortcut menu for a control or container, right-click the object.
