    Since the new context menu has a change, this can be a good change to improve something. So here is my list of my suggestions. If you read this and also have a suggestion, you can also reply to this thread.

    -The dropdown menu width follows the dropdown menu button width, so it will be much easier to reach the item. for example, like the Unity Hub dropdown behaves.
    Unity Hub:

    -The new context menu is great. It has a dark mode, but the scrollbar is very huge for the context menu. It will be much better if it uses a collapsed scrollbar instead of a full scrollbar. (Behave like the blender scrollbar. Expanded when the mouse goes nearer the scrollbar.)
    Proposed: (collapsed in right and expanded in left)

    I right click with the mouse, then switch to the keyboard and type. In the current state I have to go back to the mouse to click on an item or press Return to "confirm the search"/"exit the search field", then press DownArrow to move to the first entry (or multiple times until I get to the entry I want) and then again press Return to confirm the selection and execute the menu item.

    Just don't have the search-bar selected in the first place. Have the first element selected, so I can quickly right click, switch to keyboard, type whatever I'm looking for and then hit Return to execute the first entry. Or use the DownArrow to immediately go to the second entry, third entry and so on.

    Hitting Return multiple times while the Search-Bar has focus has no effect at all.

    Type - Select - Confirm
    should be the workflow.
    Not
    Type - Confirm Search - Move Away From Search - Select - Confirm
    .
    Please fix this.

    I want to chime in as well regarding the sub-menu alignment or better said misalignment which is quite ugly (23.2/ 23.3):

    The issue could easily be fixed by adding an offset for each sub-menu:
