Is there a way to simulate (or does there exist an actual key combination, perhaps making use of the Fn key, that acts as) the context key on the Surface Type Cover?

I didn't realize until I tried to do real work with the Surface how much I actually use that key.

Do you mean the Context Menu key?

Try ShiftF10.

That's exactly what I was after. Thanks :) – BraedenP Sep 15 '13 at 22:12
Note that this works if you have F keys enabled; otherwise it's Fn Shift F10 – Christian Rondeau Sep 16 '14 at 23:39
