26.5 Mouse Clicks for Menus

Mouse clicks modified with the <CTRL> and <SHIFT> keys bring up menus.

C-Mouse-1
This menu is for selecting a buffer.

The MSB (“mouse select buffer”) global minor mode makes this menu smarter and more customizable. See Buffer Menus.

C-Mouse-2
This menu is for specifying faces and other text properties for editing formatted text. See Formatted Text.
C-Mouse-3
This menu is mode-specific. For most modes if Menu-bar mode is on, this menu has the same items as all the mode-specific menu-bar menus put together. Some modes may specify a different menu for this button.1 If Menu-bar mode is off, this menu contains all the items which would be present in the menu bar—not just the mode-specific ones—so that you can access them without having to display the menu bar.
S-Mouse-1
This menu is for specifying the frame's principal font.

Footnotes

[1] Some systems use Mouse-3 for a mode-specific menu. We took a survey of users, and found they preferred to keep Mouse-3 for selecting and killing regions. Hence the decision to use C-Mouse-3 for this menu. To use Mouse-3 instead, do (global-set-key [mouse-3] 'mouse-popup-menubar-stuff).
