  • Hi

    a context menu is the popup menu when you right click on a control...

    a context sensitive menu is where the context menu items depend on your current selection/activity

    think of word:

    right clicking in a new document gives options for the entire document or page = context menu

    now select some text and right click on that text=> some specific possibilities concerning the selected text = context sensive menu

    Hope this answers your question, please close the thread if it does
