  • Hi PilarB,

    Do you mean you want to add a option in a Internet explorer right click (context menu) to open your app in new tab using JS?

    If yes, There is no option to add option in context menu directly using JS.

    You may need to develop extension for the IE to add an option in context menu.

    You need to install this extension on every machine where you want to have this option.


    1. Internet Explorer Browser Extensions

    2. Adding Entries to the Standard Context Menu

    Let me know, if I misunderstand anything from your above description. I will try to correct myself.
