Why does rightclick+t on a link open the link in a new tab, yet rightclick+t on a bookmark on the toolbar grays it out?

This happens to be more of an issue using a trackpad. Then you rightclick on a link and then hit "t" it opens the link in a new tab. when you do the same command on on a bookmark on your bookmark toolbar, it grays the bookmark out. none of the settings have been changed on it. the way to fix it, i discovered is to right click on the bookmark and hit "p" no idea why, but this solved it. I can't find any of these command online, partly i don't know how to correctly search the rightclick command, but partly, it would only probably list the commands that actually show up as stuff to click with your mouse.

I would also like to know why for two different locations that both open a link in a new tab, why the mapped shortcuts are different. for a link, it is rightclick+t, for a bookmark it is rightclick+w. I mean, make it the same commands, it makes much more sense that way.

Because the "T" in "Open Link in New Tab" is underscored in the link context menu (right-click menu)

You are on Windows 7 and by default Microsoft hid that useful information by default in all of their menus.

See item #9 on my page Windows 7 Home Premium

Restore missing underscored letters in menus (turned off by default in Windows 7)
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Ease of Access Center (WinKey+U) → Make the keyboard easier to use
  [x] Turn on Toggle keys
  [x] Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys
  [  ] Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen.

Toggle keys appears both under mouse and under keyboard in Ease of use / Accessibility options.
Though I would like to activate the last option, preventing windows from being automatically arranged would also deactivate my favorite Windows 7 added WinKey+<arrowkey> keyboard shortcuts to resize window to left/normal/right side, or to maximize/norm/minimize window.  On a dual/extended monitors this would be left/norm/right on each monitor so left/right arrow actually have six positions passing between monitors.
Please mark "Solved" one answer that will best help others with a similar problem -- hope this was it.


Have also included in Right-Click Menus and Toolbars in Firefox which you may find interesting as well.

I turned on all the hidden keyboard shortcuts, but what does toggle keys exactly do?

You also didn't explain why rightclick+t on the bookmark fades it our and rightclick+p unfades it.

There is an old bug report about this:

  • Bug 301888 – Bookmarks cut instead of opened in new tab from Bookmarks Toolbar Folder
