    The stylus tap and hold operation is equivalent to a right mouse click. This invokes the context menu. How can this be hidden?



    On Windows Mobile devices, when a page is accessed in a browser s, if you tap and hold the stylus on the page for a few seconds; you get a popup context menu with the following 3 options

       Select all text
        Refresh page
        Add to favorites

    This context menu is the standard menu entries in the Browser. To disable it you can use configure an empty Custom Keybar 6. Within CETerm, entries in Custom Keybar 6 can be enabled to appear on the Context menu. You can configure an empty "Custom Keybar 6" to "remove" the context menu entries. Please follow these steps:

          1. Go to Session -> Configure -> Options -> Configure Keybars & Keys -> Custom Bar
          2. From the top dropdown, select "Custom Keys 6"
          3. Delete all entries on this keybar. Note you will not be allowed to delete "Prev Keybar"
          4. Enable the checkbox "Enable Custom Context Menu"
          5. Hit OK all the way out

    Now when you tap and hold the stylus, you will not get a context menu as it is empty.
