Right-click an inventory folder or item to display various options.

  • Many of these options can accessed in other ways, but you may find it more convenient to right-click.
  • Right-clicking a folder lets you create new items inside the folder, which is the same as using the My Inventory menus.
  • With items, the topmost context menu option (with the exception of Sounds) does the same thing as double-clicking the item. For example, if you right-click a landmark, you see Teleport.
