Menu Key does not work as it should in Windows

First thanks for new version, it's enabled me to ditch Ditto - not that Ditto didn't work, but I don't need both.
When I'm editing the history list and I tap the Application Menu key (the key that is usually positioned between the Right-Alt and Right-Ctrl) the cursor moves to the edit box - it should display the context menu. That's what the key is for, and it works that way in every other application I use. BTW Shift+F10 should do the same as the menu key. See Menu key - Wikipedia ==>> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menu_key
The Del key should delete the current item, and the standard key to edit an item in a list is F2.
These defacto standards have been around for 20-30 years, so why not use them
I have a disability that makes mouse usage difficult, so where ever possible I use the keyboard.
ETA; Windows 10 Pro 64 bit version 1703, CF 5.1.1
And, why doesn't the About box show the version number Ψ²
Thanks Phil D

I've added these to our list, thanks! At the moment you can use Shift + Delete to delete an item.

Regarding the version number on the About screen, it's actually in the window title, and also in the tooltip when hovering the tray icon with the mouse

Hi Keith,
Kindly add my vote for the context menu key as well.
The scenario goes like this, CTRL+' to open the history menu, scroll down the history menu using keyboard till your selected data and you want to run a macro. You press the context key and weird pop-up shows up instead of the right click menu.
Context Menu Button :

Expected Right Click Menu with Context Button:

Actual Context Menu Output:

Yep! I've lumped all the standard shortcuts (include the application key) together into one request

Hello Keith, first of all thank you for CF. Love it, have a couple of licenses. This issue of the context menu would make the experience even better. Do we have an update on it?
Thank you,
