The Question is:
In a fileview window, clicking the right mouse button on a selected file
produces a drop-down menu of file types which differ according to the type,
e.g. EXE files allow Copy, Purge, Run, or Show File; OBJ files only allow
Copy, Purge, and Show File; most
other file types allow a much bigger choice.
How can I customize these:
a. for myself
b. for the user community (I have administrator rights)?
Thank you for listening.
The Answer is :
In FileView, select the Options Menu pulldown and select the File Type.
Customize as desired.
The following is additional material related to notation. Please see
the applicable style guide for further details.
The OpenVMS Wizard will assume that the current mouse configuration is
right-handed. (In the experience of the OpenVMS Wizard, it is somewhat
more common for left-handed users to be familiar with the mouse button
organization, settings, and notation. It is also somewhat more common
for right-handed users to reference buttons as right and left buttons.)
To avoid hand-ambiguity, X Windows refers to the three buttons on the
typical three-button mouse as simply MB1, MB2, and MB3.
Within the Motif and CDE style guides, these three buttons are expected
to perform functions variously known as Select or Adjust, Drag or Transfer,
and Menu or Custom (application-specific function, pop-up menu, etc),
respectively. (With a two-button mouse, MB1 and MB2 chorded together
will produce MB3.) Whether the mouse and the buttons are configured
for left-handed or right-handed operations is left entirely to the user.
With the stated assumptions, the mouse button involved here is MB3.
