It might be mentioned that the context menu in search results list shows View(Lister), though without hotkey F3, but does not show Edit with F4 hotkey.

"Edit" is only shown in the context menu for file types for which Windows (not TC) has an associated editor, like .txt or .ini - and this also works in the immediate Search result list and the "Feed to listbox" Search result list.

TC has not shown hotkeys in the context menu unless in TC 9.0 b1 to b10

Thanks for the information, petermad; I could have seen it, but forgot completely.
Showing hotkeys is mostly helpful in learning new combinations if a particular function was to be used frequently.
Otherwise, the most common way would be by trial and error; and maybe reading help afterwards.
Probably there were reasons to remove it from context menus.
