Windows 7: My context menu key doesn't work for everything.

My context menu key doesn't work for everything.

Most of the time, my context menu key works great when something calls for a "right-click", but it doesn't work for everything, like for an icon in the system tray, so I need a program to let me do this.

In case your wondering, I ditched my two-button+wheel mouse for a one-button mouse. I have Cerebral Palsy, and a one-button mouse works better for me.
