Four months ago John White asked essentially the same question. Alas, it was (wrongfully) closed down as a duplicate: namely, the answer given in a (supposedly) duplicate question still relies on mouse pointer's position.
OTOH, the Context-Menu key (as in Windows) would allow one to right-click at the:
- position of a caret (useful when text editing),
- selected item in Finder (main impetus for asking this).
How would one do these two in OSX?
Usage example for 2.
Finder with a keyboard, one would like to, say, open a selected file with another application (
Open With). Now, how would you do it with a keyboard only? In this example, a keyboard shortcut for
Open With would also do.
