In Windows Explorer, if a file is focused, press Menu Key on keyboard, context menu will show on top of the file. But in Nautilus, the same action shows context menu where the mouse cursor is. That's a bit annoying. Is there anyway to make it work like Windows?

This is a bug in Nautlius and fixing it would require modifying its source code.

Note that while the context menu is positioned next to the mouse cursor, the options in the menu apply to the highlighted file, not the file currently under the mouse pointer.
