I try the following hotkey in Chrome:

!F3::Send {AppsKey}{Up}

Chrome opens the context menu but it doesn't move the selected line in the context menu. Instead the {Up} command moves the scroll bar up.

I tried this hotkey in another application it works as expected. Namely, the {Up} command moves the selected line in the context menu.

What should I do to move the selected line in the context menu of Chrome by using Autohotkey?

It is usually necessary to wait a few milliseconds after opening a content menu so the keys are sent when the focus is actually on the context menu. So, you can play around with the Sleep command until you find an acceptable time (I used 100 milliseconds in my example):

    Send, {AppsKey}
    Sleep, 100
    Send, {Up}
