Achieve maximum canvas app productivity with right click and keyboard shortcuts

Headshot of article author Emma Cooper

One of the most common things people do when they start editing a PowerApp is right click and be disappointed to only find the browser menu. Well, no longer! We have updated the canvas to respond to right clicks to perform key actions such as Copy, Paste, Reorder and Align.  Simply select a control, and right click using the mouse to open this menu. No worries for keyboard users, this same menu is also available in the tree view.  Stay tuned for more inline quick property editing goodness coming soon to your right click mouse button.

Did you know there is also a published list of keyboard shortcuts that we keep up to date? You can discover keyboard patterns that will help you work faster. Keyboard shortcuts documentation

Pro-tip: Use CTRL+C and CTRL+V to copy and paste across apps.

Happy building!
