Choosing Functions from the Context Menu (Shortcut)

The SAP System uses the function keys on your keyboard. Depending on your task, certain function keys are active that is, various functions from your application and task are assigned to them.

You can display a context menu with these function keys and their assigned functions. By default, this context menu is not visible. To display it, click the the right mouse button.

  1. Place the cursor anywhere below the toolbars.
  2. Click the right mouse button.
  3. The context menu opens, as shown in this example:
