How to Activate the Contextual Menu in NetBeans for Mac OS X

If you are like me, you probably enjoy writing Java code in NetBeans under Mac OS X on your Apple laptop but curse the lack of a second trackpad button. Thankfully, there is another way to call the contextual menu. Here is how it is done.

  1. Open NetBeans IDE
  2. Open Preferences…
  3. Select Keymap
  4. Expand Other
  5. Select Popup
  6. Click on Add…
  7. Specify a key combination (I find Cmd + Opt + / to be most appropriate)
