    Right-clicking in the project window displays a context menu. Half of these items are never needed in my daily work:

    I would appreciate if you can keep this the context menu to relevant items. That are items where the quick access through the context-menu is beneficial. For example "Reimport all" isn't from any advantage to have in the context-menu in my opinion.

    In order to show all items, I suggest you do it like Windows Explorer. If the user holds down the shift key and right-clicks, it opens the context menu with all items.

    I never use:
    • Rename
    • View in Package Manager
    • Import New Asset...
    • Import Package
    • Export Package...
    • Refresh
    • Reimport All
    • Extract From Prefab
    • Run API Update...
    • Update UI Elements Schema

    I rarely use:
    • Open
    • Delete
    • Copy Path
    • Find References in Scene
    • Select Dependencies

    I often use:
    • Create
    • Show in Explorer
    • Reimport
    • Open C# Project

    I only use:
    Create
    Show In Explorer
    Reimport

    But it is not a problem for me if there are other items.

    As an artist and programmer I use:

    I often use:
    • Create
    • Import New Asset
    • Show in Explorer
    I rarely use:
    • Rename
    • Reimport
    • Refresh

    You know I never noticed that Select Dependencies section, that would have been helpful yesterday.
    What would be nice is if we could configure this menu. I understand how to add new elements to the right-click screen but it would be nice if we could change the order and what shows on screen. They could just have a menu that allows you to change the order and what items show on screen when right-clicking. Since I use version control I don't ever deal with packages anymore and unity's package system has been terrible so I would get rid of that section.

    I'd love to be able to override the entire context menu with my own.
