X1 german keyboard missing context menu key?

[ Edited ]

I recently bought the X1 with a german keyboard layout.

 

The manual states the keyboard has a context menu key but is has "Druck" on it which is "Print" in english and this key does indeed something else.

 

Where is the context menu key? Or can I remap it somehow? Or did I just miss something?

 

Here a picture of my keyboard:

Here the excerpt from the german manual pdf:

Re: X1 german keyboard missing context menu key?

hey MRoc

there is no contect menu key for the X1. You will still be able to get the context menu with one of the following key combo


Shift+F10
Ctrl+Shift+F10
Fn+PrintScrn

Re: X1 german keyboard missing context menu key?

Thank you for your answer. In the meantime I remapped the key using KeyTweak, a neat freeware.

 

So it seems the manual is wrong, at least the german one, I do not have the english version.
